BEFORE YOU EXPERIENCE A WATER EMERGENCY- know where individual shut off valves for most plumbing fixtures are and the location of the water meter.

Main Water supply to your entire home:

  • At the water meter
  • A valve handle or gate wheel close to the water faucet that is on the front side outside your house and directly across from water meter

Water supply line to:

Kitchen and bathroom faucets:
  • Underneath the sink in the cabinet there are shut off valves for hot and cold water supply line to the faucet
  • Shut off valve is behind it
Clothes Washer:
  • Shut off valve is behind it
Dishwasher/Ice maker
  • Line is connected to the cold water shut off valve underneath the kitchen sink
Bathtub or shower:
  •  Must shut off main supply to home
Remember, if you experience a water emergency; try to isolate the problem fixture first. If the leak is in the water supply line before the shut off valve or the shut off valve itself, then you would need to shut off the main water supply to your home.
