The Hydra-Stop Shutdown Calculator worksheet outlines a typical planned shutdown scenario and the costs that occur with that shutdown. Compare the costs of any three shutdowns and see how the Insta-Valve 250 insertion valve from Hydra-Stop can fit into your system, save you money, and allow you to provide better service to your community.

Remember that excavation, equipment, labor, and materials are inherent and remain the same no matter how you do the job.

What happens to your costs in an emergency situation? How many times has scheduled routine maintenance turned into a costly, time consuming problem? A routine halfday job that becomes a four or five day project is a prime example. In a planned or emergency situation, you can avoid all the problems and costs associated with a shutdown by using an Insta-Valve 250 insertion valve.

Your easy-to-operate Hydra-Stop installation equipment can be used for pipe sizes up to 12”. Equipment for 16" valve installation is also available. After an initial equipment investment, you maintain a fixed job cost, no customers are out of service and there are no unknown costs.

TractorWhen shutdowns are avoided with Hydra-Stop, the cost of the valve is your only equipment expense.
