This type of valve is valuable for shutting off the water supply in your home or workplace after a pipe has burst or if you discover a water leak and want to stop the flow of water. Turning the stopcock in a clockwise direction will shut the water supply off, and turning it in a counter-clockwise direction will turn it back on.

Most of the time, you’ll find the stopcock underneath the kitchen sink, but if you can’t find it do call us now and one of our engineers can locate it for you and check that it is functioning correctly, in case you need to use it in an emergency.
