Water Line Leaks? Fix It Yourself! Here's How...

Step 10: Back in Business!

Turning the water back on

Check to make sure the faucet handle is fully open.

Double check to be sure that the valve is in the off position (perpendicular to the tubing).  You may now safely turn the water main to the house back on.

After turning on the water main, you may slowly turn the valve to the on position.

Water should begin to flow immediately after the valve is opened. 

Finish by checking over your fittings and faucet to be sure that there are no water leaks. 

CONGRATULATIONS!  You have successfully repaired your leaky water line!
