    House with a crawlspace. Water main is on opposite side of crawlspace access hatch.

    Do you pipe from the main to the access hatch (35 feet of expensive copper pipe) so it is easy to just reach in and shutoff the water when winterizing?

    Or is there some kind of frost-proof shuttoff valve that can be used that can be done from outside without having to crawl in there with the spiders?

    DanaMac,

    Exactly what I need. This is much better than digging a big pit to get to the water main in the lawn from the street. And better than crawling under the house with the spiders (well, just once to install it).

    What kinda prices do you pay in your area?

    Thanks,

    Walk Good

    All praise Danamac!! Just kidding. Glad to help.

    Sorry, I don't remember the price on those. Haven't used one in years.

    TWS-8 are around $130 bucks now I think. Unless they have gone up again.

    It's made of brass, so naturally it's gone up yet again.

    I am trying to find someone who stocks/sells them. Do you know any online suppliers I could try?
