Washing machine

What is the best setup so I don't have a flood from a broken hose, I see Watts regulator valves not only sell a variety of shutoffs but they have a hose with a built in shut off in case of a leak. What is the proper setup without going crazy?

At least not that damages the ceiling. Do you have floor drains? You should.

Look to the right of these posts. There is a list of valves for what you want to do. Good luck.

Replacing the hoses every few years goes a long way toward preventing leaks, even without a shutoff valve.
