I've had a number of phone discussions about installing the system. One guy said he'd just put a shutoff valve in a similar placement. I can't imagine how that's done.
If the hole is drilled horizontally and the pipe is pulled from the crawl space out to the water meter, how do you insert the valve? It might be quite deep. Putting the valve under the house won't work. That area is not easily accessible.
Do I really need a shutoff valve? I've been using the water meter shutoff valve. It's easier than cleaning the spiders out of the local one. Since I haven't turned it in 30 years, I was afraid of making it leak anyway.
I'll call for some bids tomorrow, but I'd like a better understanding of my options when I discuss it with them.
