My mains water stopcock is not under my sink. Where can I find it?

All modern homes are required to be fitted with an inside and outside mains water stopcock, so don't worry if you can't find yours under the kitchen sink! Many properties have their mains water stopcock positioned in an airing cupboard, under the bathroom sink, in a utility cupboard, under your floorboards by your front door, within a garage, cellar or behind a panel next to your boiler. Apartment buildings often share a mains water stopcock so if you are having trouble finding yours why not ask your neighbours?
