Water stop clock
If you have a leak in your home or you need to do some DIY that involves plumbing, you may need to turn your water supply off.
How to turn your water off
You can control the water entering your home using the inside stop valve.
This is usually located under the kitchen sink but can also be in an airing cupboard or under the floorboards near the front door.
Using your inside stop valve
You should be able to operate the valve yourself. Turning the valve to clockwise will close it, reducing the amount of water passing through. It may take a few minutes for the water to stop altogether.
To turn your water back on, simply turn the valve anti-clockwise.
Our short how-to video guide above will explain how to find and use the inside stop valve.
