1. Lean how to turn your water supply off at the meter
This may seem obvious to some people, but for those who don’t know how it could potentially cost you thousands. For instance, if a plastic hose running to your washing machine or dishwasher breaks and you don’t know how to turn off the water supply, your kitchen or laundry will flood causing thousands of dollars in damage.
Turn off the tap controlling the stop valve on your meter to stop the water supply to your property.
