It always amazes me that shut-off vakves are not placed more in systems splitting them up.

When I started reconstruction of my present place - I followed same as I did in previous. Shut off valves at each item of the system. So I could replace a tap, pipe, connector etc. without whole house needing shut-down. 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 !!
