Most stop taps are fitted under the kitchen sink and can be closed by turning clockwise.
Watch Rob show you how in our handy guide to Finding your inside stop tap.
You can do this by turning on all the cold taps in the house and, once you have turned off the boiler or immersion heater, turn on all the hot taps.
