Backyard faucet question.


Trying to figure out why no water is flowing from outdoor faucet. 1965 built house. Wall pipe comes out of is a bedroom closet. No shut off valve on outside or inside of house. Don't know if pipe goes up, down, or sideways in wall. Any ideas? Has a small copper wire that moves in and out next to it. Don't know what that's all about. It had a spigot which I took off. Pipe inside looks like it bends down, not sure though. I guess tearing out drywall in closet would be a fairly easy way to see where pipe goes. Any idea on how to get water flowing again?!

Re: Backyard faucet question.


It may be an abandon line that was never taken out or possibly could be hooked up for future use. Idk, just guessing.

It's possible there may be a hidden valve enclosed in a wall somewhere. Perhaps as you suggest removing some of the drywall will reveal it.

Re: Backyard faucet question.


This has to be a home in the south, due to not having a a freeze proof sill cock, also should have had a vacuum breaker to make it legal.
If there's no water coming out then there's a shut off someplace stopping the flow.
I'd be spending more time under that house looking for a shut off before I'd be tearing out walls.

Re: Backyard faucet question.


Where is the nearest water supply lines to this pipe? Start looking there. Could have froze and burst in the wall so it was cut off further back.
A metal detecting stud finder might be able to trace it.
