Do You Know Where The Main Water Shut-Off Is At Your Home?

Here's a quick video that is important for homeowners (and home renters) too.  The folks at the plumbing company Mr. Rooter® want you to know how to shut off your home's water supply.  Be prepared to handle a water emergency by knowing how to use the water shut off valve for household water leaks, burst or broken plumbing pipes or natural disasters. If you take a few minutes to learn the procedure now, you'll be ready to prevent a flood in your house. A burst pipe could cause thousands of dollars in property damage and leave you with sky high water bills in the event of a serious leak or broken pipe.

This is very helpful information.  Everyone should take time to figure out where the main water shut off is in their home.

Good afternoon Lisa,

As there were no shut off's in different areas of this house; yes I know and now have ten other ones as well.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Hi Lisa - it is important to know in an emergency.  In fact all main utility shut offs should be known.

Hello Lisa ...

Great information and  video and every homeowner should know this.

Godd information to share Lisa. I make sure all my buyers know where the shutoff is when we do the walk through.

Lisa locating the main water shut off was one of the first things I did when I purchased my home.  Locating the main water shut off is as important as knowing where the electrical panel is in my opinion.
