Pipes and cable in cupboard on outside of house

Postby Danpj » Fri Apr 10, 2020 7:38 pm

Hello I’m not sure I’m in the right place but here goes
Me and my partner bought a house back in 2016 and on the outside of the house there was a cupboard sort of thing never looked into it until we had a heavy winds and it blown the cupboard door off so thought I will take a look thinking it was just a hole inside but now I’ve had a closer look there are water pipes and electric cable
The pipes look like they go to the main stop tap

Any advice on what to do with them?

Hi damp,
They are isolating valves - cover them up and refit the door until you have to do something about them.
