Hi, I can answer your question, lets handle them one at a time. Click 'accept' when you are satisfied.. or we can get another expert.
The outside water faucet, where one usually connects a hose, is supplied from the pipe inside the house... the house water shuts off elsewhere of course.
The water supply to most homes shuts off at two places... one under a plate in the sidewalk or lawn, where the water meter is.. you need to buy a water meter wrench for that, $10 at the hardware store, it also shuts off where the water pipe comes up from the ground outside your house, usually very close to an outside wall, in a flower bed.. the pipe is about an inch or so in diameter and will be wrapped with heavy black tape and the shut off valve will be right there.. easy to recognise.
Let me know if this works...consider this a partial answer until it does, do not click accept until we get a complete answer and a resolution to your question.
at 8:00am, the complete water supply to the entire house was shut off at the city meter by the street by using THE WRENCH.
I want to know if there is a valve/lever under the house in the crawl space behind the brick wall where the pipe is thru the o/s wall holding the faucet on the other side of the brick . this a.m. the faucet would not shut off the water even though the on/off knob had stopped.
i want the water turned back on to the house use only without water coming out to the faucet. i will try on another day to replace the faucet, but i need water to the house for toilet, shower, drinking, etc!
does this make sense!
the water shut off is usualy at the front wall of the building with a valve if it is a building with no basement i would check the walls that face the street there should be an access door or a bump out where the line is
with some homes without a basement the main valve can bee in the guarage eithewr in a pit in the floor or in the middle in the boiler room another popular spot is under the kitchen sink
in homes with basements they are usualy at the front wall of the basement and in sone areas ther is a valve in the meter pit in the front yard
one other popular location is under the stair case
