My water supply

Stop taps

Stop taps are used to turn off the water supply to your property.

This is important in an emergency, for example, if there is a leak or a burst pipe. You may also need to turn off the water supply if you’re having building or plumbing work done.

Typically, a property will have an inside stop tap and an outside stop tap.It's important to check your stop taps from time to time to make sure they're working.
