Do you know how to turn off your water supply?

1/21/2019 (Permalink)

For most jobs in-the-home jobs, all you’ll need to do is switch off an indoor supply valve.

  1. Identify the main shut off valve. This is usually a brass valve that has a round handle. In most homes, it is located near the main water pipe leading into your home.
  2. Shut the valve by turning it clockwise. This will cut off the stream of water flowing into your home. If the valve is stiff, wear a glove while closing it to protect your hand as you apply some elbow grease. After that, all appliances that use water will no longer work until the water is turned back on.
  3. Turn on all of the faucets to flush the remaining water in the system. Run your sinks, baths, and showers until the water stops flowing. When water’s been bled from the lines completely, turn all of the faucets off.
