Do you know how to turn off the water supply if your faucet cracks? It happens. Faucets break, at times violently, and water will spray across the wall and flooring. Don’t worry! You can stop the water yourself right away, before scheduling a repair.
Look under the sink for the water shut-off valves. There will be a cold water shut-off valve coupled with a hot water shut-off valve. They’re usually chrome with a smallish oval valve handle. Turn the handles clockwise until the water stops pouring from of the faucet. Occasionally, water shut-off valves get stuck from infrequent use. If it won’t move, get a pair of pliers and carefully turn the knob backwards and forwards- Eventually, the rubber seat on the inside will loosen. Do not strain it all at one time or it could break and bring about even larger plumbing problems. If the valve spins readily and will not turn the internal seat, tighten the set screw on the face and try again.
If you can’t turn off the water with the valve under the sink, you can use shut-off valve on your water main instead. This valve shuts off the water supply for your entire home, and it’s wise to know where it is before you need it in an emergency. Once the water is stopped, call Green Plumbing Solutions.
