Emergency Water Shut Off

The first thing to do in any plumbing emergency is to shut off the water to the affected area, to minimize water damage. That could either be to a localized shutoff valve, called  a supply stop, underneath a faucet or near the bottom of a toilet. If the leak is to a pipe inside the house, you will need to shut off water to the entire house.

Directions to shutting off water from the meter.

Emergency Plumber Charlotte Shutoff Valve“Almost all water meters have one main shutoff valve directly before the meter and another directly after. Where the meter is located depends on the climate in your area.In cold climates, the meter and main shutoff valves are located inside, usually in a basement or other warm area to prevent freezing. In milder climates, the meter and its two shutoff valves may be attached to an exterior wall or nestled in an underground box with a removable lid.Between the water main in the street and the meter, there’s also usually a buried curb stop valve (accessible only by city workers wielding special long-handled wrenches) and a corporation stop, where your house water line hooks up to the water main. Your city absolutely doesn’t want you messing around with these last two valves.They prefer you turn your water off or on using the main valve on the house side of the meter. This valve will normally be a gate-type valve, with a round handle, requiring several full clockwise rotations to turn off. In newer homes, it could be a ball valve.”

If you cannot locate your shutoff valve, please call us at (704) 937-2309, we would be glad to help.
