I've a small plumbing job to do over the weekend - fitting an outside
I intend to T off the 15mm cold supply that comes from the main stop
tap in the house under the kitchen sink and then feeds the cold water
tank in the loft, my T is about 3 foot along this pipe from the main
I was thinking of putting a service valve in between where I put the T
and where the pipe goes up the boxing in the corner of the kitchen,
about 12 inches from this T
This would mean that in future if I want to work on the cold water
from this T back to the main stop tap I could just turn the new
service valve and not have to drain the cold tank in the loft.
I've got to run a cold supply into the utility for the Washing machine
at some future point.
STOP TAP | T | VALVE | TANK
Does this make sense ?
Now coming to my quandary, do I put this new valve in with the flow
arrow going with the flow or, since I really want it to stop the flow
coming back down the pipe do I install it the other way round.
Thanks for any guidance
