How Much Does it Cost to Install an Earthquake Gas Shut Off Valve in Southern California?

Different companies charge different amounts but most retrofitters are about the same cost. Any California licensed plumber is able to install an earthquake shut off valve. Always use a licensed plumber for this jot and never use a handyman simply to save money.

When hiring someone else, best to send them a photo of the meter first, then get a ‘hard’ quote for the job so no up-charges are tacked on. Also different cities charge different fees for a city permit, and make sure the plumber you hire is state licensed and licensed in the city where the earthquake valve is located in. There are no differences in plumbing codes between cities, as the California uniform plumbing code is state mandated and the same for all cities.
