Water Flowing into Crawl Space

  • Most likely, it is winter and the spigot on the outside of the house has been damaged by freezing temperatures.
  • Turn the water off for the whole house to stop the water.

    • The water shut off valve will most likely be in the corner with the furnace. You will see two valves. One above the water meter and the other below the meter. Either one will turn it off.


    • These valves may or may not be located outside the crawl space. Most likely the water valve will be in the crawl space. You can turn it off there. Look for the water meter by the crawl space entrance near the foundation wall.
