    Default House water main on a main street - How to turn off/on?

    Hi all,
    I live in a main street an need to fix some leaky taps.. The water mains of the house are exposed to the street and the builder has placed a security system where you need a key to turn the knob, problem is, after I went to bunnings and got one, it is not a standard one so now thinking of doing it with a spanner, any other solutions?

    Thank you.
