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.

Dallas arrived ahead of schedule for my home inspection.  That shows commitment from my viewpoint.  Dallas was very thorough and answered all of my question.  The photo’s and summary pages in the report were very helpful.  Thank you for a very professional job!

We were very satisfied with our home inspection.  The walk through not only confirmed what we had already knew, but pointed out many things we didn’t know about the home.  We feel we now have a very good set of background information about our new home.

You were very thorough and took the time to explain every question. The home inspectors report was helpful for a single female, first time home buyer. The photo pages were beneficial in showing where repairs were needed.
