Where is the shut off valve for the bathtub?

A sink's water shutoff valve is usually under the sink, but it may also be on the other side of the wall. If the bathtub valve is not in the sink vanity, it may be located directly underneath the tub in the basement.

Besides, where is the water shut off valve?

This valve is usually in the basement or on an outside wall in a utility area of the house. The main shutoff valve allows a full flow of water through the pipe when it's open. Turning off this valve (by turning it clockwise) cuts off the water supply to the entire house.

Also Know, is there a shut off valve for shower? This supply valve is usually near the bottom left side of the toilet tank. For showers/tubs, look around the tub or shower for an access panel. It may be on the other side of the wall from the tub or shower.

Similarly, how do I turn off the water in my shower in my apartment?

  1. Cut off the water supply at the main valve in the house or apartment until you can get your tools.
  2. Remove the screw in the center of the shower handle or knob.
  3. Pull the handle or knob assembly straight off the valve stem.
  4. Grip the valve stem with pliers and turn counterclockwise until you feel resistance.

How do you turn off water supply?

The shut-off valve for your home's water main is likely located in the basement, near your water meter or wherever the local water supply enters your home. Generally speaking, it will be on the wall that faces the street. If this shut-off valve is tap- or knob-style, turn it clockwise (to the right), to turn it off.
