Locating water shut off valves for tubs and showers are not as easy as sinks or toilets and are usually concealed.
  • Look around the tub or shower for an access panel. It may be on the other side of the wall as the tub or shower.
  • If it is not found in an access panel, then it is located under the floor in the basement or in a ceiling access panel in the floor below.
  • Once located, turn off the appropriate valve.
