Just imagine if you will the following scenario. You wake up one morning to the faint sound of running water, but you don't know exactly where it is coming from. But it can't be all that bad right, after all it's only a faint sound nothing to major. At least that is what you think until you walk into your kid's room, which is right under to the laundry room. When you look in, it looks like there is a large bubble of water forming in the ceiling, and along one of the walls. What do you do? Do you know where the water shutoff valve is? Locating the water shutoff valve in this situation can be a bit of a nightmare if you don't know exactly where it is.
Luckily, the water shutoff valve is not that difficult to find. Considering that most homeowners are on public water, the directions here will be based off of that. All you need to do is follow these simple directions, and you should have no problem whatsoever finding the shutoff valve. Just keep in mind that it is better to find that valve prior to an emergency forming.
