WHERE DO I TURN MY WATER OFF TO THE HOUSE?
It’s important you check your internal and external stop taps before you start any work on your property.
Your internal stop tap (also known as stop valve or stop cock) is the point where you can shut off the water supply to your home or business.
Make sure you are aware of the location of your internal stop tap, you may need it in an emergency.
In a home the inside stop tap is usually located under the kitchen sink, but can also be in an airing cupboard or under the floorboards near the front door.
You should be able to operate the valve yourself. Turning the valve clockwise will close it, reducing the amount of water passing through. It may take a few minutes for the water to stop altogether. To turn your water back on, simply turn the valve anti-clockwise.Turn it on and off slowly, never force it. If you over tighten or use excessive force you may damage the stop tap.
