If your taps don’t have local isolating valves, turning off the water can sometimes be the most time consuming part of this job. Knowing where your stop valve is and having it accessible can speed this up. This may be beneath the sink, outside the front of your house or other odd locations especially if your house has been extended at some time.
If your stop valve doesn’t move think about spraying it with some penetrating oil before the visit. Your handyman should be able to free up most exposed corroded valves.
