Home Safety - Main Water Shutoff

The main water shutoff controls the flow of water to the entire home.

Care and Maintenance Tips General Information

  • Familiarize yourself with the location of all plumbing shutoffs in your home so you know where they are in event of an emergency.
  • Each plumbing fixture in your home has its own shutoff valve. If a fixture is leaking, use the shutoff valve for that fixture to stop the flow of water.
  • The main water shutoff should only be used in emergency situations when water is leaking excessively and the source of the leak cannot be determined.

* If you are in a Condo residence please refer to your Condo Association Documents to verify your responsibilities, if any, for the maintenance of these areas.
