How To Turn Off Your Water

In this week’s quick tip, Austex Sprinklers explains how to turn off your water.

When you need to shut off your water, you need to either find your double check or your backflow prevention device. Your backflow prevention device can be located near the water meter or on the side of the home. If you have a backflow device that is a double check, it’s usually in a green, rectangular lid 12×18 inches in the ground, near the water meter. If you have an above ground RPZ, it’s typically within a few feet of the water meter or on the side of the home. Once you find these devices, you need to turn the handle to the right 90 degrees. Once that is done, the handle should be perpendicular to the device and the water should be shut off. If you have any questions, never hesitate to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you.
