Main Water Valve

Gate Valves are not necessarily more fragile but they corrode much faster due to their complex nature and closing mechanism. 

Quarter turn watr valve was designed to last longer and to turn off the water fast and completely blocking water from entering your house. 

What do we mean by accessible? A lot of homeowners do not know where their valves are located and some that do crawl under or through things making it way too complicated to turn off in case of any water leak emergencies. 

Another way to know if your valve is not working is not just when it’s leaking rusty or located in inconvenient places, it’s also when the valve no longer closes all the way, most common in gate valves. You can determine this by shutting off your valve and going to your city meter and watching if the needle moves. If it continues to move your valve no longer works. 

Gate valves or faulty ball valves can not be fixed. They must be completely removed and replaced with a new unit. ITs also always recommended to call a Plumber any time soldering is involved.
