Overflowing toilets, broken pipes, and other plumbing emergencies can cause a lot of damage to your property if given the time to do so. When you have a water leak or flooding, shutting off your home’s main water supply provides you with a way to stop the flow of water and to minimize further damage until a plumber arrives.

Your home’s main water shut-off valve can be located indoors or outside, and the easiest way to find it is to determine whether the house was built over a basement, crawl space, or slab. If you have a basement, then you will probably find the shut-off valve in this room. For properties with a crawl space, the valve is often under the crawl space and along the home’s front wall. Finally, your water’s main shut-off valve should be near your water heater if your house is on a slab.
