The first thing you need to do when you fine a leak is isolate the water.
How to find your Stop Cock or Stop Valve
Your stop valve is nearly always in a room where water will be used, and it’s normally on the ground floor.
Quite often the valve will be in the kitchen or bathroom, but don’t forget to check the garage if it’s attached to the house. Sometimes they are under the stairs. If you don’t know where the valve is there is an additional valve in the street outside your house, just make sure it’s your valve!
If you have an internal water meter, then the valve will be on the pipe going into the meter.
Renovated houses sometimes have stop valves hidden behind cupboards, under floorboards or boxed into strange places. If your home is renovated, make sure you have some tools handy in case you need to get to it in a hurry.
Once you have isolated the water supply, run all the taps and flush the toilets to get rid of the water in the system.
If the leak is really bad, you should also turn off your electricity at the fuseboard and run all the taps and flush the toilets to reduce pressure and water while you wait for your plumber.
