Found out this has been posted, already. My bad.
I'm playing detective here. :detective::detective:I wonder if it was side-job......and if so, do ya think he handed them a bill at the end?...…….:vs_laugh:
While I rarely touch curb-stops after installation, I have been part of Valve Detail. When we are digging next to any Water Main, especially Primary or Secondary Feeders (definition: Primary Feeder 300mm +, Secondary Feeder 200mm to 300mm+ & situation dependent) I prefer to know where the valves that isolate the line are. Most of the time, it is only 2. I have seen 3.That's why if I'm ever touching a old main shut off my curb key is in the service box.
The best part is at 5;40 "call the police and get them to shut the water off."
