In a plumbing emergency, you’ll need to stop the flow of water quickly. To do this, you and each member of your family need to know the location of the shutoff valve for each fixture and appliance, as well as the main shutoff valve for the house, and how they operate.
How do I shut the water off in an emergency?
Look at the diagram below. If the cut off valve is running with the pipe, it is open (water is on), if the cut off valve crosses the pipe, it is closed (water is off). Another way to tell is the “ears” on the valve the water department uses to lock your water meter in the off position. If the “ears” line up so that a lock can go through them, it is closed. You can use a pair of pliers, channel locks, vice grips, etc. or you can purchase a meter key from most hardware stores.
