My toilet doesn't have a water valve on it.(If it does I don't see it)I
want to turn off the water so I can replace the internal parts in the
toilet because it's leaking inside.The only valve I see is under the
sink, and that only turns off the water to the sink.
I live in a condo, is there a way to turn off the water?
Yeah, believe it or not, those stop valves you see at every fixture
are NOT REQUIRED by code. Code only requires two shutoffs. One at the
water heater; a second valve to kill the main water. You shoudl have a
shutoff somehwhere in there..probaby in the utility room. If you live
in a condo, ask your super. He should be able to help you. if you have
no shutoff, while the water is off, go ahead and install one now. In
fact, if you don't have shutoffs at every faucet/kitchen sink/toilet,
install them now. They are EMERGENCY stops. You'll think you wasted
your money installing those damn stops until one of those little stops
makes the difference between a major flood vs. the small inconvenience
Is your condo relatively new, or is it an old building that's been
converted? If you don't see a valve under the left corner of the toilet
tank, you'll have to find the main valve that shuts off everything.
