    All is well in Wonderland! Not a sound other than water flowing.BTW, after using the ball
    valves instead of standard bibs believe they should be standard installation. Does the water
    flow when drawing...

    Tried the Clorox pellet some months ago without success. Will give the Dragon's idea a shot;

    however, ...

    The ball gate suggestion is great. What material is recommended (Brass, SS, Brass/Bronze)?Meter

    Thanks. Can call and see what sort of reaction I receive.Since there is a water bib just above
    the shutoff handle is it smart to change out both in their entirety or just the washers?

    Glenn:It appears the only way to shut off the incoming water to the outside house main is at
    the underground water meter. Are you aware whether city suppliers frown on customers turning
    off the inflow...

    OK, hopefully bothering you for the last time. Applying my deductive powers I conclude that
