Do You Know Where Your Water Shutoff Valve Is?
Do you and your family know where the main water shutoff valve is located in your house? It is always harder to find something when in a panic. That is why we highly recommend that you be aware of its location before a disaster strikes.
”Where It Is Not: It is likely not under a sink. The shut-off to the water heater may look promising, but that only affects the outflow of hot water from that point. Do not confuse the gas shut-off to the furnace or water heater with water lines.”
“Check Your Inspection Report: If you still have your property inspection report from when you purchased the house, it should indicate the location of the shut-off valve. Inspection reports often follow a standardized format, so you may find this information located in Section 6.1.”
