Home gas hot water heater: What is the difference between WAG valve and Floodstop?

Asked by Francois de Kock

I need to replace a hot water heater that failed major flooding. I want to prevent this from happening again by installing either a WAG valve or Floodstop. What of the two is the best to use?

Francois, I am a Taco guy. That said, I would go with the WAGS valve, especially since it shuts off the gas also. These valves qualify for an insurance break from many companies, so it could actually pay for itself.
