Water Damage emergency in Ventana Canyon?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

A water shut-off valve is shown. We restore water damage in Pima County.

Burst pipes can cause catastrophic water damage in a short period of time. Everyone in the family needs to know where the main water shut-off valve is located and how to turn it off. SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson and SERVPRO® of Oro Valley/Marana East’s technicians are on-call 24-hours a day to respond to water damage emergencies. Here is some information on locating and shutting off the main water shut-off valve:

Start by locating the main shut-off valve. The main cut-off valves are usually outdoors in warmer climates, and in colder climates, these valves are usually indoors. The water shut-off valves have either a round wheel or lever handles.

It is important to note that if a valve is difficult to turn – DO NOT force it. Call a licensed plumber or the local public works authority for assistance.

  • Round wheel handle valves will turn off by turning the handle to the right (clockwise). A few turns should stop the wheel.
  • Handle valves should slowly be turned clockwise ¼ turn. The handle should no longer be parallel with the pipe. It should stop at a ¼ turn.
