Main Water Valve Location and Operation


Main Water Shutoff Valve

Main water valve location and identification – For you and your family members, knowing the location of the main water valve is one of the most important things you should know.  Everyone in your home should know where the main valve is and how to shut it off in case of an emergency.  Another important point is that the valve should turn easily so that anyone could turn the water off.  During the course of my home inspections I tag the valve for easy identification. Many times people know where the valve is located but, when a water problem develops, they don’t remember which valve is the main valve. The tag will identify the valve and could save thousands in the event of a water leak.

As first time home owners there are a lot of new things for us to learn.  You pointed out and taught us a lot about the home during the home inspection.  We are so glad Shelli referred you!  Thanks for all your help.  We also love the Basic Home Systems book.

Rick did a great job inspecting my new condo. He was very friendly and thorough. He did a great job explaining things to me and letting me know what I needed to know. I would  highly recommend him.

I thought the  home inspection was very thorough.  Being a first time homebuyer,  I don’t have a lot of experience about things like electricity, sump pumps, etc.  I learned a lot of useful information about the home.
