Outside Water Faucets Turnoff Valve
Hi everyone and thanks for looking at my post. This is my first post here and i'm in desperate need of some help. I recently purchased a house that was built in 2007 but it wasn't completely finished downstairs. I have started to finish off one of the rooms, the laundry room, which is the room that has the main water shut off valve and contained all the exposed pex plumbing. Without realizing that my outside water shutoff valve could be there, I started laying drywall and spackling. Now it's getting colder and I can't find my outside water shutoff valves. I have looked everywhere and was unable to find them. But then I remembered seeing an odd valve before I laid the drywall. After cutting a small hole in the drywall to obtain access to the valve, I discovered that it didn't control the facuets at all. Now I have no idea what this valve is for. I have attached a picture I took of it. Please someone tell me what it is.
