Re: Supply pipe location
After 27 years we still didn't know the location of our supply pipe or external stopcock.
Last year mid pandemic a leak upstream of the in house tap forced us to get the waterboard in.
They acted promptly and with enthusiasm, but could not at first locate the pipe, dug a trench in the road with a big yellow machine at the obvious spot. Turned off taps by water troughs in neighbouring fields etc. Even dug out (at the suggestion of a retired water inspector) an as it turned out disconnected meter point on the golf course.
After ten days 180 degrees out from any direction expected metal detectors found the pipe and a couple of spares. In an hour a Polish guy (why are they all Polish) dug a hole, cut the pipe and fitted a brand new plastic stopcock. The original has never been found.
Just think of the man hours (at one point we had six people on the job) that could have been saved by a simple plan or map.
Still suspect we're stealing our water from the golf course's metered supply.
