Below is a picture showing the components of a typical home water service connection. Your actual installation may be different, as some Hideout properties have the water meter located outside of the home in a “meter pit”, and not all homes need a pressure regulator. 

Homeowners, tenants, and guests should be aware of the location of the main water shut-off valve in case of emergency. Valves should be operated slowly and carefully, and a plumber should be contacted if you have any questions or concerns. 

To close a ball valve (typically with a straight handle as shown below), turn the handle slowly one-quarter turn clockwise so that the handle is at a right angle to the pipe. To close a gate valve (typically with a round handwheel), turn the handwheel clockwise slowly until it stops turning.
