How often do you turn your water off at the main shut-off valve? A better question is do you know where your main water shut off valve is located? You probably haven’t seen it since your home inspection and though you hope you never need to if you have a water emergency you may need to know.
The shut-off valve is most often located near your water meter at the front of the property. Most homes have another shut-off located in the home before it splits off to other systems that require running water (hot water heater, air conditioning unit, water purification system, etc.).
If your home doesn’t have a secondary shut-off valve inside you’ll have to turn the water off at the water meter. Turning the water off at the meter requires a water meter key which can easily be purchased at your local home improvement store. You’ll want to store that key in a quick and accessible place in case you need it.
It’s a great idea to have recommendations for three plumbers to handle any plumbing issues you may face. Your friendly neighborhood handyman can help with minor repairs like a small leak or running toilet but for major repairs, you’ll want to seek the help of a specialist. One handyman can be your primary handyman but having a few backups is always a good idea especially in case of an unexpected emergency. You can DIY plumbing and there are lots of DIY videos on the internet but having a professional “on-call” might save your skin some day.
