Tip 1: turn off the street water

Notes:

  • Plumbers In The CBD will always use a water key to turn off the water at the street level first before tackling any plumbing issues.
  • You can get a special water key – which is a rod – that you need to turn the valve up by the road.
  • Find the valve, use the water key to turn it off, and wait for the water to stop flowing in the house.
  • Turn on a shower or tub to let the water drain in the house; drain the lowest faucet outlet in the home.

    This though is really hard, it will take a lot of youtube videos, practice and your guide for me to be able to pull it off. It rather looks easy when you tried to outline it even with those photos but sure I can try, maybe the first step is just the hardest one. I’ll definitely try what you’ve suggested.
