    I suppose it goes to prove that there are the occasions that push fit fittings have their uses..

    The moral is that it's good to know where working stop cock is.

    Could have been worse,, Hot water.

    From the evidence it looked like a tap change then when he turned the water back on the stop tap head unscrewed , 15secs in he emerges with what looks like a valve head.

    He Should have opened the tap to relieve some of the pressure.

    Apparently the plumber didn't want to pay $150 to turn the water off (somewhere in the states)
    I did feel sorry for him when I saw it earlier, but if the above is true, what a muppet
