When many people think of their plumbing, they consider only the pipes inside their home. However, the plumbing for which you are responsible actually includes the service line -- the pipe that originates from the connection to your meter vault to your home or building.
 
Company Service Line
 
Owned and maintained by RLCWA, the service line extends from the water main to the meter vault.
 
Curb Stop
 
Owned and maintained by RLCWA, the curb stop is a valve that can be opened and closed to control the supply of water to the property.
 
There are a few basic things that every property owner should know about their plumbing system:
 
  • Know the location of your meter vault.
  • Know the location of your main shut off valve in case of an emergency. This will allow you to shut off the water to your home.
  • Know how to protect your plumbing from severe weather conditions that can result in expensive repairs.
  • Repair any leaks to avoid increased water bills.
  • Know how to read your water meter.
