Water Connection Standards - Winter Service Valve
Typical Installation:
To Turn Water off:
Turn handle on Valve "A" ¼ turn as shown. Do Not Use Force.
To Turn Water Off and Drain Plumbing:
Turn Valves "A" and "B" off. Open Valve "C". Open all taps in kitchen and bathroom.
When water has drained out of the plumbing through the drain pipe, open Valve "B".
This will allow the water remaining in the pipe between Valves "A" and "B" to drain out
underground through a special hole on the side of Valve "A".
As a safety precaution, before leaving, it would be advisable to close
Valve "B" in case someone tampers with Valve "A".
To Turn Water On:
Close Valve "C". Open Valves "A" and "B". Let water run through hot and cold water
taps until the air is all gone and the water is clean.
Approved Winter Service Valve materials:
Curb stop and drain
1.68 m (66") Service Box
1.83 m (72") Stationary Rod
