They can vary- allot I have seen are standard handle. Its more difficult opene the man hole... But some need a special alan key that building inspectors carry around- I have seen a Triangular one once, the same that opens the Electrical box on the street.. but this varies from country to country and you can use a flat screw driver to open the locks, I would not recommend using that on a valve! Try to find it and if you got issues let us know.

Those tips are great.. but in winter it will be really cold. Looking at Wikipedia. it can get cold.. So i would not advise doing all this.

comment What's the suggested standard gauge wire for a given current?
Your answer is very good and the PDF is great resource to. But Home regulations to not take into account so many things. Home Building is pretty simple lowest(safest) rating for SOLID COPPER CORE. 5mm2 upto 3500Watt(boilers, heaters) 2.5mm2 - up to 2500(wall plugs, computers, kettles)( 1.5mm2 - 1200watt (lights) - Obviously they can handle more. but for safety this is guide lined. Breakers vary from country.

comment Should I create my own faucet aerator?
Never mind i saw the whole thing now.. best bet is making a custom one out of a really big round one or a set of smaller round ones.. bummer.

comment Should I create my own faucet aerator?
Well it is a bit unconventional.. but if you cant mount it at the end.. mount it somewhere after the tap nozzle.. is the whole thing square? It wont work like it "should" but it will help.. Or find two small round ones. and get the shape of the square, set them in epoxy and squeeze them in to the end. I have not seen square ones.. except in expensive fountain installations....
