Water Shutoffs

When it comes to leaving your home for an extended period of time, you might wonder how to make sure your water is shut off while you’re away.

  • Locate your water manifold (house front)
  • Using the water valves, adjust and release the pressure
    • With newer homes, the valve may be in the garage
    • Turn the water off at the street meter
    • Clockwise turn the valve on the top of your water heater
    • Also shut off gas to the side of the water heater by turning valve counter-clockwise
