Who We Are…

Optical Utility Marker (OUM) is a company owned by two individuals with over 40 years of combined utility experience.  The owners have personally dealt with the frustration of trying to locate valves and have seen the damage caused if valves cannot be shut down quickly.  They have first-hand knowledge and experience with the ease of installation and the benefits of valve markers.  Acquiring a smaller organization, Z Markers, allowed OUM to branch out and continue a steady path to growth.

American Made…

Optic Utility Marker (OUM) products are American-made, durable plastic that doesn’t fade, tear, or crack over time.  Once secured in place with adhesive, the markers will last for years.  Markers installed in 1992, when the product was first introduced, are still functioning well.  Today, OUM Markers come in various colors and reflectors.  The combination of colors for these markers are nearly limitless with refelctive materials also made in an array of colors, including the standard white reflector. For more information about our Valve Markers, call us at (562) 273 – 5622 and ask for Daniel!

How Markers Are Used

Optic Utility Markers  are generally used to easily find and locate hidden, buried, or mis-marked valves and vaults for fire hydrants, fire services and water mains, which can be hard to find.  These “Z Markers”, as they are usually called, can be applied in a number of ways.  These types of valve markers can be used at water parks, amusement parks, boiler rooms, hospitals, sports stadiums and most areas where valves are used.

Most common types of needs apply to large scale areas where valves were neither marked or identified.  Over years, many of these types of valves become hidden due to natural elements or non-identification when first installed.  Well, that is a problem of the past!  Optic Utility Markers are a great way to identify valve locations.  They can be seen at night, or in low-light areas, because of their reflective features.  They can be color-coded to fit any color combination need and can be used both indoor and outdoors.  In most cases, these Z Markers can be used in hundreds of ways!
