Martin Lewis is best known for finding the latest money saving deals. Last night, he appeared on The Martin Lewis Money Show to share his latest advice.
What is a stopcock?
Most properties will have two valves, an internal and external stopcock.
The exteneral one controls the flow of water from the water main in the street to a property.
The valve inside is the control tap that all homes have for their mains water.
Martin said all homeowners should know where this is as the weather gets colder.
The Money Saving Expert asked viewers: “Do you know where your stopcock is?
“You should all know where it is and if you don’t, I need you to find it.”
A stopcock generally looks like a tap with pipes going into it.
The tap feature means it can be closed to stop the flow of water.
Martin added: “Sort out your energy bills if you possibly can.
“The key is your cheapest, your winner, depends on your usage and where you live.
“That’s why you go and use a whole-of-market comparison service, one that’ll look at all the tariffs, not hide those that don’t pay it and tell you your cheapest and don’t feel you have to go for the very cheapest on the market.”
