Stopcock? My ex-wife must have had one of those. Haha. Thanks for the videos. Truly. Many thanks. God bless you, brother.

tommmmmer says:

Good stuff. Suprised your videos don’t have more views, I like the way you show things rather than draw them also the realtime aspect helps.

Robin Graham says:

Nice video.

Shame that the plastic keys which fit that kind of water meter seem to have vanished from all shops and online suppliers. IIRC yellow ones with a socket used to be in every builder’s merchant a few years ago. Now I can’t find one for a neighbour (and I ain’t’n’t going to leave with him my socket set!)
