When you find a leak.

If you find a leak in the house, determine where it is coming from. If it is from a toilet or under a sink look for the angle stops. If you cant find the angle stops look for a central valve box. It is like an electrical circuit breaker box, but for the plumbing system. It is common in newer homes in Clark County. If it isn't coming from a toilet or faucet with a shut-off under it, look for the whole house shut-off in the garage or outside. Here are some examples of what to look for.
 
Angle stop under toilet - Plumbing Services in Las Vegas NV
 
An angle stop under a toilet. This is a quarter turn angle stop under a toilet. As the name suggests it only needs to be turned 90 degrees to shut it off. Most older type angle stops need to be turned clockwise multiple times to turn off. These are the same type of shut-off under most sinks.

Another type of angle stop. With this type of angle stop, you need to pull the handle out to turn it off and push it back in to turn it on.
 
 
Water shut-off - Plumbing Services in Las Vegas NV
 
Whole house shut-off in a garage. This is a gate valve with a pressure regulating valve next to it.
 
 
Water pipe shut-off - Plumbing Services in Las Vegas NV
 
Another type of shut-off in a garage. This is a ball valve with a PRV also next to it. With ball valves, you only need to turn it 90 degrees to operate it. The handle should point away from the pipe when it is off and with the pipe when the water is on.
 
 
Central valve - Plumbing Services in Las Vegas NV
 
Central valve system in a wall. Look for a cabinet door in the wall to find these types of shut-offs. They are typically in laundry rooms and sometimes in closets. I have even seen them in garages.
 
 
Inside of a central valve system - Plumbing Services in Las Vegas NV
 
The inside of a central whole house system. When you open the door, you will see several pipes going into shut-off valves. Some are made of brass and copper and some are plastic. The good thing about these systems is that you can even turn off a leaking shower or tub valve without turning off the whole house.
