Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Plumbing Category: Faucets

Problem:

Shutoff valve is not found underneath or near the faucet.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Solution:

 

In the course of having to repair a sink, you may have to cut off the water supply to the sink/faucet temporarily.  To do this, you'll need to completely turn the shutoff valves of the sink clockwise.  This would be a little hard to do--impossible to do if you actually cannot find the shutoff valves.

If your sink comes with shutoff valves, they are usually found underneath the sink (usually in a cabinet below).

If, however, you do not find the shutoff valves underneath the sink or nearby, your sink was likely built very long ago, and your only resort would be to then turn off the main waterline to your house, the waterline shutoff valve of which is usually located outside of the house, often near the water meter.

So, the next time you're in a hurry to shut off the water to your leaking faucet, bend down to seek and shut off the shutoff valves; otherwise, go outside and shut down the main waterline to your house.
