WARNING: GENERAL LIMITATIONS OF SEISMIC VALVES: To avoid unnecessarily shutting off your gas, seismic valves are designed not to trip until the seismic forces exceed the levels set forth in the Specifications. If your gas lines, connections, and appliances are not properly installed and maintained, they may rupture at seismic levels lower than the level at which the seismic valve is designed to trip, leading to gas leakage and possible fire and explosion. SUITABLE FOR USE ONLY WITH NATURAL GAS OR GAS NOT LlKELY TO FORM GUMMY DEPOSITS. If the gas seismic valve is not properly installed the seismic forces may not reach the gas seismic valve and it will not work. It is essential that you ensure that your gas lines, connections and appliances are properly installed and maintained, and that you inspect them periodically for leaks and corrosion. Gas containing higher than normal levels of sulfur may corrode the inside of the gas seismic valve. Be sure to have your seismic valve checked by a qualified professional if you receive any information that your gas company has supplied gas containing sulfur concentrations higher than normal.
