    You can find yourself at home, minding your own business, when watery tragedy strikes. As you hear the toilet begin to overflow, you try your tried and true method of flushing again, to no avail. You know that you must shut off the water. But how? Well lucky for you, we have the answer.

How to Turn Off the Water For The Toilet


  1. Have you ever wondered what that pipe on the back of your toilet is? Well it is the water shut off valve. It is a pretty self explanatory term. In order to turn off the water you must identify where your water shut off valve is.

  2. On the valve there is a handy handle. This handle will allow you to utilize the water shut off feature of your toilet.

  3. All you have to do is turn the handle. And just like that, you are the bathroom hero! If the handle is stuck you could try some handy WD40 or in a pinch, some vegetable oil.
