Shut Water Supply Off

Water Shut-Off

Turn off the water to your existing faucet by using a shutoff valve found inside the house or basement behind the faucet, or by closing the main water supply. Open the faucet and a bleeder valve on the shutoff to drain any remaining water from the pipe. If your shutoff doesn’t have a bleeder valve, the remaining water will drain out of the supply line when it is cut. With the shutoff valve and exterior faucet open, wait for the water to fully drain.

Tip: Finding Your Shut-Off

You may not need to turn off your entire home’s water supply. Check if there is a shut-off valve further down the line that stops just your outdoor faucet. Here, one was hidden behind a removable wall panel.
