Quick Tips For Homeowners Video – Water Shutoff Valve

Posted on: October 30, 2014
Chances are you’ll never have a water catastrophe like a burst pipe in your home, but if you do you can’t afford to waste precious minutes searching for the main water shut-off valve. That’s why it’s crucial for every homeowner to know where this valve is and how to shut it off.

The first thing you need to do is find you water meter, because the main water shut-off valve is usually close to it. Where the meter is located can vary. In colder regions where pipes could freeze in the winter the water line usually enters through the floor of the foundation. Locate the line entering the home and follow it to the water meter, keep following it and you’ll see the shut-off valve. To stop the flow of water, turn the valve clock-wise. Make sure everyone in the household knows where the shut-off valve is. If you need help finding your water shut-off valve, give ABC Plumbing Heating, Cooling and Electric a call, we’ll be glad to help.
