Is there an emoji - or several - for the sort of water tap that goes under the edge of the pavement or the sort indoors near where the water enters the premises?
And, if so, how do I enter it/them in the ASCII code of a Web-type page that I am writing?
I hope not. One thing you may need to think about is that many people who
visit web sites will have no idea what it means and blind people using
screenreaders will not hear much but graphic if they are lucky.
Accessibility is becoming mandatory, so really certainly add little touches,
but use plain English as well to allow people to understand what the page

It's a D-I-Y job, so on-topic here - I want to have the stopcocks,
switches, etc., in the communally-accessible parts of this block
of flats to be permanently and legibly labelled (the stopcock
labels are pen-on-cardboard, and have become only marginally
legible [or worse] over the years), and, with a little simple
CSS, I have drafted a page with the necessary labels, to be
printed on A4, laminated, cut apart, hole-punched, and tied on.
So I thought that it would be nice to add a stopcock emoji to each.
With a stopcock emoji not found, I'm now using a greatly-scaled down image.
You may find a suitable combination of these:
Or, something a bit abstract, like ⊗ or ⫱ (both on that
above linked page), although some sort of key/legend would be required,
I think :-)
