What I was asking by 'this was a water pipe so that we could have our own water supply and if so' was is this a water supply pipe as I cannot trace it due to us having solid floors. We can have our own water supply pipe as one of the houses on our street already does.
Yes we do already have a water supply but this is a common supply that runs from one end of the street to the other, actually through the walls of the houses, and a lot of the time the flow rates are really poor.
We live in a terrace house with no front garden so how do I find the external stop cock myself or do I need the water company to find it for me?
