Isolating hot and cold water supply to shower

Postby benvaller » Mon Nov 30, 2020 6:52 pm

Hi I have just moved into a new (old) house and require to isolate the shower water supply to replace the seals. The closest isolate valves I believe I have found look like this, are these isolator valves and if so is there a special tool to required to close them?
Cheers for any help anyone can provide.

Hi benvaller
Try turning the slotted part with a screwdriver so the slot is across the pipe. You may find the valve is seized solid so go carefully. Regards S
