Editors note: A photo is associated with this press release.

The TimeOut™ valve marketed in Canada by BELANGER UPT was recognized by the American CONTRACTOR MAGAZINE as a product of the year 2013. The TimeOut™ automatic shut-off valve is a solution in preventing disasters caused by burst washing machine hoses. It is equipped with an adjustable timer that can be preset from 30 minutes to 2-1/2 hours for which no wiring is required. The valve is manually activated, and automatically shuts off the water supply once the preset timer times out. This eliminates pressure on the rubber hoses or flexible connectors and therefore prevents water damage, insurance claims and any losses caused by such disasters.

The TimeOut™ valve was selected among a list of top ten products in the « READERS CHOICE » of the CONTRACTOR MAGAZINE, a publication that caters to entrepreneurs and professionals in the construction industry. The recognition coming directly from these experts is a testament to the TimeOut™ valve's design features, ease of installation and quality.

With over 45 years of existence, BELANGER UPT is a Canadian leader in the design and manufacture of faucets and plumbing accessories. Renowned for its excellent customer service, its enviable reputation has been built on the quality and durability of its products.
