SOLVED: most likely location for spigot's shut-off valve?
there is a 10' run from the spigot into the center of the house, and then it turns 90 degrees and there is another 10' run to the main water line in. unfortunately i cannot see these pipes because they are above the basement's drywall ceiling.
is there a logical place to guess where the shutoff may be? i want to punch a hole in the ceiling to access the valve, but i would love to start in a logical place.
any plumbers out there in slickdeals? is there a rule of thumb, like "within 2 ft of the exterior wall?" from what i can see from the laundry room, there is no shut off within 6 ft of the main, probably because the bathroom lines come off the pipe about 2' in from the main. there are no other branches from the line.
any other tips? i could not get a snake through the spigot and around a couple tortuous bends at the exterior wall, but i do have access to the wall right now from the inside because i ripped down the drywall for other reasons. still no visibility of the 10' of ceiling pipe adjacent to the spigot.
