Re: Can't locate main water shut-off valve

said by robbin:

You did verify the direction of flow through that meter I assume. If so where is your cutoff?

I only verified that the blue handle actually turns off the cold water. I could not find another valve like that on other side of the meter but it could be hidden behind the panels somewhere else in the basement.

Also, I see a ground wire connected below the blue handled cutoff. I believe that should be jumpered to the other side of the meter. Not sure of code there, but I believe it is normal to jumper the ground to both sides of the meter.

Yes. I plan to "improve" that ground connection and also add a copper strap between the two sides of meter.
