Knowing the location of your water shut-off valve is important for a few reasons…
- In case of emergency, such as a burst pipe or cracked toilet you need to be able to quickly turn off the water supply to the house to prevent further damage.
- For convenience when making plumbing repairs or replacing fixtures you need to be able to shut-off the water to the house without having to call the city. This will save you time which will likely save you money.
- For peace of mind. Simple knowing where your water shut-off valve is and how to use it might save you a bit of stress.
In addition to knowing where your main water shut-off is and how to use it, it’s a good idea to peridoically test it. You don’t want to find out your main water valve doesn’t work when you need it the most!
