Main Water Shutoff

After replacing all of the house’s exterior locks the previous day, we felt the home was secure enough to start hauling some stuff over from the old house.  It was mostly my tools and some other things we didn’t want there for showings at the old house. We planned to keep living in the old house at least until there was running water at the new house.

Main Water Valve

The original main water shutoff was failing, so I soldered on a 3/4″ ball valve up stream of it to be used as the main water shutoff.

Hole in Living Room Ceiling

I also knocked out a large section of drywall in the living room ceiling to expose the leaky plumbing.

That set the stage for the next several weeks of plumbing work.
