What do I do if I an a tenant?

Contact the property manager, superintendent or owner. They may contact 311 to report the issue.

What is the problem is with only one tap?

If the problem is only in one tap, then it is probably not a problem with the City’s water service to the property. You may need to inspect the tap for blockages or contact a plumber.

What do I do if the pipes are frozen?

Learn more about frozen pipes including tips, precautions and steps to take if your pipes are frozen.

How do I check aerators for blockages?

Aerators restrict the flow of water from your tap without reducing water pressure. They can reduce the amount of water you use by more than 50 percent.

To check for blockages, unscrew and remove the aerator from your tap and then test the water flow.

Where is the stop/waste valve located?

The stop/waste valve is typically located in the basement, along the front wall and near the floor. Other common places include basement washroom and laundry rooms. If you have a water meter, the stop/waste valve should be on the attached pipe.
