You may find you have a separate stop tap for the kitchen tap that comes from the mains and the tank supply. In older properties you might not be able to find the stop tap.
Check that you can turn the stop tap on and off. Do this 3–4 times each year to make sure it is not stuck.
Show everyone in your house where the stop tap is and how to use it and put a label on it saying what it is. You may also have separate stop valves for pipes leading to washing machines or other appliances.
There should also be valves in the pipes leading from the cold water tank.
Outside the house, there should also be stop taps under the path or out in the street. These are often known as “tobies” and are under metal plates in the ground.
Check that you can lift the cover off the toby. The tap underneath may need a special water key to turn it. If you do not have one you can buy one from a builder’s merchant.
If you live in a tenement or block of flats, there may be a series of tobies in the street. Try to find out which one belongs to which property and show your neighbours. If there is a burst pipe in another flat, you may be able to limit damage for everyone by turning the water off in the street.
If you cannot find stop taps or tobies, you should consider getting them fitted in an easy to access location. A plumber will be able to advise you how to go about this. Your plumbing and gas supplies must be earthed for safety. An electrician should be able to check your earthing is adequate.

BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Water through the south-to-north diversion project has arrived in Beijing on Saturday after a journey of over 1,200 kilometers Cheap Capitals T-Shirts , bringing with it a torrent of doubts and worries.
Mao Wei, a resident from a community in Tongzhou District of Beijing, never expected he would benefit from a project conceived by late Chinese leader Mao Zedong, who shares the same family name with him, more than 60 years ago.
But Mao Wei has his own concerns over water from the Hanjiang River, a tributary of the Yangtze River Cheap Capitals Hoodie , China's largest waterway.
"It's no difference," said Mao, "but I feel worried when people warned on the Internet that the water may become yellow due to poor quality."
In order to eliminate public concern, Beijing Waterworks Group has sent out educational leaflets. It said if the water becomes yellow, the public does not need to be worried because it is due to a high density of iron ions and will not affect people's health.
The middle route's first-stage project starts at Danjiangkou Reservoir in the central province of Hubei. It was officially put into operation on Dec. 12..
Completion of the first stage is a major sign of progress for the enormous south-north water diversion project, which cost an estimated 500 billion yuan (about 80 billion U.S. dollars) and is the largest of its kind in the world.
It will supply 9.5 billion cubic meters of water per year to the northern regions Custom Capitals Jerseys , including the cities of Beijing and Tianjin, and provinces of Henan and Hebei.
However, arriving in Beijing is not enough. The water supplied through the project needs to stand the test of time.
A web user named "Ma Ke'an", a self-proclaimed doctor in physics, published an article online claiming China's south-to-north diversion project a failure, sparking debate.
Ma said the average flow rate and carrying capacity of the project failed to meet the design objective Cheap Capitals Jerseys , which means the project cannot supply 9.5 billion cubic meters of water per year to the northern regions.
He also said river sand will eventually destroy the middle route of the water project. Water from Danjiangkou Reservoir contains large amounts of sand, but the designers insisted on discharging it directly into the main canal.
The main canal of the middle route is 1,432 km in length, featuring a 1,196.36-km-lon.
