Water Safety During a Hurricane

Posted on Actuated Valves, Water Safety September 6, 2017 by Enolgas USA

We’re in the thick of hurricane season, and with hurricanes, you get catastrophic flooding. Hurricane Harvey (and Katrina before that) are examples of the type of flooding that can happen during a powerful storm.

We specialize in creating high-quality actuated valves. When there’s flooding, our actuated valves will allow you take the excess water and move it to a different location.

Hypothetically speaking, if your home or business was getting flooded, one of the actuated valves could detect the increase in moisture before it gets to critical levels, and then transfer the excess water to a safe location. At the very least, you’d know ahead of time that the water levels were getting too high so you can do something about it.

Hurricanes are no joke. The potential of flooding should be taken seriously. If you’re in a hurricane-prone area or about to get hit with a powerful storm like Irma, you need to take the proper precautions for flooding. Our actuated valves will do their part, but it’s better to be extra safe.

Make sure all your electronics are off the ground. Unplug all your electronics beforehand. Put all your important documents (ex: passports, birth certificates, titles, etc) in waterproof bags. Put small electronics in waterproof bags. Have an evacuation plan. Evacuate if you’re near the shore.

These are just some of the precautions you should take. If you have any questions about how actuated valves can help during a natural disaster– more specifically, flooding– don’t hesitate to talk to one of our specialists. Call us at (855) 366 5427.

From everyone at Enolgas USA to our family, friends, and customers in hurricane-prone regions… Don’t wait too long to get ready for an impending natural disaster. Please be safe this hurricane season.
