    Solenoid valve is just another valve and could have been installed according to the what ever the designer's intentions were.
    I don't see them very often, but I did see one in a Dentist office once. It was for shutting off all the water to their suite.
    I did not have to get a ladder and climb up into a ceiling to shut the place down.
    They just flipped a switch. Water Off. I change a couple stop valves. Flipped a switch. Water back on.
