Curb Traps

Curb traps, otherwise known as curb stops, are used to stop water from entering the home.

Curb traps, or curb stops, are used if you have flooding in your basement. They are also often used while a repair is being made to water and pipe lines.

This device is normally found underground and requires digging to ensure that it is closed off. Using the curb box, which is a box that has the valve for closing and opening the curb stop, does this procedure.

The curb stop valve is never set for continual use or it may break.
