  1. Property doesn't have a stop cock!!

    So looking for recommendations on a good water toby key - ones on Amazon have really mixed reviews.

    Its an old property/street so want to make sure i get a decent key should I ever have to use it in the middle of winter!! :)

    Do you mean a crutch key? Screwfix do a Rothenburger one usually good quality stuff and toolstation do one too.

  3. Yes for turning off the mains water in the street. I had a look at a Rothenburger one below but its quite short - is it best to get a longer one - its not something I have ever used before - do you normally require the length to to get more purchase on turning if stiff?

    If it’s that stiff that you can’t turn it with a key, get the water board out to replace it
