Shutting Off the Main Water Shutoff Valve

All household members in your Port St. Lucie / Stuart area home should know where the home’s main water shutoff valve is located and how to use it and shut off the valve if necessary. 

Why the Water Valve is Important

This water valve should be clearly tagged / marked and labeled to avoid confusion. In a plumbing emergency, shutting off the water supply to the home can be crucial to preventing serious water damage. Water lines normally go from the water main to the main shut off valve so it is important to know where it is located at all times. 

Where is the Shutoff Located?

In most homes in Stuart and Port St. Lucie, the valve is adjacent to the water meter. Most fixtures also have individual shutoff valves located in their supply lines. All valves should be periodically checked to ensure they are working properly!

Water valves need to be repaired or replaced every so often as well. Grit and mineral deposits can corrode the valve over time, allowing slowly forming leaks over time.
