I need to locate my stopcock / stop valve, but am not sure how to find it. I live in a flat the UK, within a house which has been converted into three flats. However, after looking at pictures of stopcocks on the web, I cannot find anything which resembles the "brass tap" design, which seems to be typical:
So instead, I have been inspecting the back of my sink. This looks like:
And on closer inspection:
Then following it down and to the right:
Could it be the red tap on the end?
And then following it round the back to the left:
Those red and blue taps are the only taps I can see. Could these be my stockcocks? I would have thought that there is only one stopcock though, for cold water from the mains, rather than a separate one for hot water too since mains only supplies cold water.
If I follow this even further round to the left, after removing part of a cupboard, I've managed to capture a photo of this:
There are some black taps in there, as well as a red tap. However, this is by no means an easy place to get to, and I would have thought that the stopcock would be in an easier place to reach? For example, I cannot even get my hand down to those black taps, without removing the entire cabinet.
I have also tried looking under by boiler, which is a combi-boiler located in my kitchen:
But nothing there looks like a tap.
Other than these images, there really are no other places I can find in my flat which has any exposed plumbing where the stopcock might be found. Can somebody spot the stopcock in my photos, or advise how I should proceed?
