Saturday’s Tip for Long Island Homeowners – Electric and Water Shut-Offs
There are two critical control valves in your home of which you should know the location: water and electric. (If you have gas service you need to know that also.) It is important that you be able to deactivate these sources immediately in case of emergency.
Electrical disconnects may be present at a main or sub panel. You need to know which breakers control which circuits. Water valves can be present for the sprinkler system, the pool, another structure, or the entire property, so it’s also important to know which valve you are operating.
This 2-minute video explains the main shut-off valves for electric and water. The electric is pretty easy to find. A water turn-off can be trickier. You should locate that now – before an emergency – so you know where to find it when time is of the essence.
