Re: Curb stop stuck open

Mastercarpentry,

I appreciate your thoughts and I do get your humor. I even mentioned that it was very funny.

I don't see what the fuss is all about...

The issue is a simple case of lazy water co. employees, who promise to do something and neglect to follow thru. I'm sure they have suprvisors, managers, dispatchers to complain to.

In my city, the customer is still right by demanding a functioning, not leaking shut off valve. Besides, it's a safety issue. What's the big deal?

And if you mention legal issues...no customer is penalized for being a phone pest, but a customer may be penalized for lying (in the form of higher deposit).

Re: Curb stop stuck open

In most cities, the city is responsible up to the curb valve. Call them to repair it. When they do, install a shut off valve on the outlet side of your water meter so that you have the ability to isolate the water supply to your entire house.
