Do you know where your master water shut-off valve is in your

home? If you’re not home, do other family members know where

your water shut-off valve is? Do they know how to shut the water

off in an emergency?

Sometimes water pipes inside the home leak or break. Hot water

heaters may burst, toilets may leak - unfortunately it’s a fact of life.

If your toilets and hot water heaters have individual shut-off valves,

that’s great, be sure all family members know how to use them and

be sure the valves work properly.

What if a water pipe ruptures in your home or if your toilets and hot

water heaters don’t have their own shut-off valve? A master shutoff

valve can make a big, big difference. If a water pipe breaks or a

water fixture ruptures, knowing where your master water shut-off

valve is and getting the master water valve shut down right away

can help avert a major catastrophe and help keep your repairs and

clean-up simple.

It’s important to know where your water-shut-off valve is located! 

 If in doubt, you may wish to have a plumber check it out. 

We hope you never have a water pipe break or a hot water heater

burst, but if it does, you will want to know where your master shutoff

valve is, so you can minimize your damages and clean-up time.
