<p><strong>What is an isolation Valve?</strong></p>
<p>The main purpose of an isolation valve is to enable you to isolate any given appliance. For example; if you want to remove a radiator to decorate behind it and you have isolation valves fitted to the pipes, it’s just a simple matter of turning the valve or valves to off, disconnecting them and then moving the radiator.</p>
<p>The same logic can be applied to taps, water tanks, showers, toilet cisterns and a variety of other household appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines.</p>

<p><strong>Why do I need isolation valves?</strong></p>
<p>Without them, you must drain your system, remove the appliance, do what you need to do, reconnect and then refill the system… turning off the mains water just to change a tap is a real headache and can lead to airlocks when the water is turned back on.
