You come home from a long day of work and you notice a leak on your plumbing system. We get many calls from frantic customers trying to shut their water off and not knowing where to shut it down. First off in hindsight you should know where your valve is and if you dont have one you should have a Lake Mary plumber install one so you have one in an emergency plumbing situation. But if you don’t and you find yourself in a plumbing emergency look for the meter box and usually it is on the same side of the house where the meter box is.
