Trying to find your main water shut-off valve? There are plenty of reasons on why you need to find your main water shut-off valve. Maybe you are getting your bathroom remodeled by a licensed plumber. Or you have noticed a really bad leak and you need to shut off the water. Either way, it is good to know where your shut-off valve is in case of an emergency.
 
There are a couple places it can be depending on where you get your water from. So, let’s look and talk about all the possibilities and the different types of shut-off valves you may have.
 

Types of Shut-Off Valves

Before we talk about the very MAIN water shut-off valve. Let’s not forget that shut-off valves also exist under sinks, toilets, refrigerators, etc… Obviously, these valves only turn off the water to that particular water fixture. But, with quick fixes and installations. These valves will shut off the water to them if needed be.
 

How to Find City Water Shut-Off Valves

For people that get their water from a city. Their water shut-off is either located somewhere next to their water heater/furnace or in a utility room/basement. Or if you live in a decently warm place, it quite possibly is located outside in your yard. It is covered by either a plastic or metal top. Do not worry if you cannot find it. A licensed plumber can.
 
Be careful if your water shut-off valve is outside of your home and under ground. These valves can be pretty deep and may need a curb key to turn off.

How to Find Well Water Shut-Off Valves

You will have two shut-off valves if you have well water. The first is between the well and the pressure tank. And the other is between the pressure tank and your house plumbing. You will only need to shut off one to completely shut off the water to your home.

What Will The Shut-Off Valve Look Like?

The main water shut-off valve in a utility room or basement will most likely be:

Gate Valves

Gate Valves are reliable. But, if you have never turned the valve before. Go ahead and do it to make sure it will turn!
 
-or-
 

Ball Valves

If you have plastic or copper main water pipes leading into the house you may have a ball valve. This valve is open when the handle is aligned straight with the pipe. The valve is closed when it is turned clockwise!
