Do You Have a Plumbing Emergency Right Now? In the event of water leaks or flooding, reduce the risk of water damage by turning off the water source. Choose the issue that best applies to you below and follow the instructions to perform an emergency water shut off.
You can also call your local water department for help.
Turn the water supply off by twisting the handle on the water supply shut-off valve clockwise until it stops. This valve is typically located on the flex line or feed pipe going into the plumbing fixture. It may be just behind or just below the fixture (i.e. toilets, sinks, washing machine). In some cases where the supply valve is not readily accessible, you will need to turn off the main water supply.
You have several options when it comes to turning off the main water supply. Choose the option that best suits your circumstance.
