Hi

Can someone help me on this situation please.

My Mother who is in the 80s still lives in a two up, two down terraced house in the North of England. Quite a number of years ago they had the outside toilet demolished, but still kept the cold water feed so they could connect a hose pipe to it. Its a black plastic pipe about 30mm in diameter sticking up out of the concrete with a tap on the end.
Unfortunately it looks like kids are now climbing over the back wall and messing about leaving the tap running with water pouring out into the back street. Does anyone know where this pipe is likely to be connected ? so that it can be isolated ? My Mother is starting to worry that it will attract vandals etc.

Keith

I would cap it off the end of the tap is either 1/2 or 3/4 bsp, snug it up tight and it wont be a issue

eg.

as for the fence some anti climb paint on the fence should do it, failing that barbed wire

Thanks,

Your right, capping off as you suggest is probably easiest.

In the past I have found carpet gripper to be quite effective, unfortunately its frowned upon now.
