Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusIt is essential to know where your indoor stop cock is in case of leaks.
Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusPersonally I avoid that sort of thing. If your drains have worked OK since 1900 then I reckon they will last a bit longer. If something does go wrong, get someone in to fix it. That's just my way of doing things, always has been but then I can do lots of repairs myself.

Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusJazzi , that's interesting to me , I live alone and have concerns as the years go by about leaks and drains because I wouldn't know who to ring and if so would they overcharge etcetc , which company sent the paperwork. I'd like to find out more .
Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusOur stopcock is under the floorboards just inside the front door.
Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusCheck your house insurance, you might be covered, have you ever had drain problems?, if not then itís unlikely you will have in the future although it could happen, I would see if you can find other companies that will cover you should you decide to go that route...
Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusIt's always hard to decide whether to insure against these things or not but as others have said, if they have worked ok since 1900....
Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusFor those not following my posts over the past 6-8 months, I only bought this house in May. The surveyor reported, in Homebuyer’s report, that there was no known internal stop cock, and recommended one be fitted. As in, the previous owners, who’d lived here 20 years, didn’t know its location. I checked both holes outside my property when I first moved in. The meter is in one, and down a very deep chamber in the other is presumably the one to turn off supply.
Re: Plumbing and Drainage PlusRight, Iím back.
