Seismic Gas Shutoff Valve Inspection Request Form Mobile App
In the event of an earthquake, a seismic natural gas shutoff valve automatically shuts off one's natural gas service.
How does it work?
The shut-off valve can reduce the risk of explosion or fire from an excess flow of natural gas. The Seismic Gas Shutoff Valve Inspection Request Form app is used to document inspection requests of earthquake shutoff valves ensuring proper installation and checking equipment for any damages such as faulty piping that allows for a gas leak. Using the app, a contractor can record the permit number, location, and requested inspection date of inspection requests. While it is possible to manually shut off one's natural gas flow, it is challenging to accurately predict an earthquake. In an emergency, an earthquake shut off valve acts automatically to protect the building for a gas leak. This app is a preventative tool for protecting a building from damage during an earthquake and, thus, promoting the safety of all people in the area.
