You know that the toilet is clogged and the water is rising to rim of the toilet. You can turn on the cold water to the sink and bath tub to slow down the water supply to the toilet.
Next, behind the toilet near the floor you will see the water supply valve to the toilet.
Turn the knob or valve clockwise to turn off the water. Now you can work on unclogging the toilet and avoid any more spillage.
If you see the water in the drip pan or spraying from a line. Immediately shut off the valve that is near the supply side of the leak. Most likely you will see a valve above or next to the water heater. Most cases this handle will be red.
Turn the lever clockwise 90 degrees to shut off.
