Water shut off value in basement ceiling
vpofhouseNovember 25, 2012
The water shut off valve for outside is located in the ceiling of basement. Having basement finished, ceiling has beeen drywalled over valve. What to do? And how to address esthetically? We need access to this valve twice/yr. Thanks

In most cases the drywall would have to be cut and access provided similar to attic opening.

Or change the location of the valve to a point close to the spot where the water pipe enters the house, but on the outside of the house.

Hi vpofhouse,

If you're not able to relocate the shut-off as WKA suggested, you can use a flush mount access panel. We've used ones similar to these for studer vent access etc. http://www.larsensmfg.com/access_panels/flush-non-rated-access-panels.html
