The main water inlet for our old house is in the open courtyard that is currently being prepared for calcaire.
The metal pipe has an off valve before the water meter that then has a ground-level looks-like-rubber pipe through the covered barn & into the house. The metal pipe also has has a vertical pipe & a tap.
The valve & meter was covered by a wooden box with insulation material & the exposed pipe covered with insulating plastic piping that I've replaced.
Not sure how it 'should' be & wonder if we really need a plumber? Is it possible to buy some sort of ready-made insulated box? I understand the insulation is my responsibility rather than that of the water company.
Thanks for any advice.
