You NEED a Customer Shut-Off Valve!
When water lines break, you need to shut off the water FAST!
San Bernardino County Building Code requires mountain residents to have one shut-off valve. For maximum protection of your property you should install a shut-off valve 18" from the District's meter.
Guidelines for installing a Customer Shut-Off Valve are available from the District. Please visit your Water District website. Before installing your Customer Shut-Off Valve please contact the District to obtain standards for proper installations.
Shut off Valves should be clearly marked with a stake or pole that is easy to find in winter snow. All family members and your patrol service, if applicable, need to be able to locate and operate the valve.
Remember, all water that passes through the water meter is the homeowner's responsibility.
