The plumber who works on my present place - he agreed with my reasoning - but STILL I found work where they hadn't fitted valves.
To me it's same as breakers on electrics - I have a breaker for EACH ring .. means I can isolate lights or sockets in each room alone without rest of house blacking out.
I also don't agree with burying under concrete etc. unless there is a conduit pipe to allow replacement of pipe or cable that passes through it ...
Good on yer babe ... my wife can't even change a light bulb or plug !!
I Agree with you Nigel, if pipes are under a house they should in a conduit to where you can get to them to replace them if needed
and have Access panels on the side of the house.
very few women are mechanically inclined, maybe about 1% they work on cars, trucks and jets and are techs
