Frequently Asked Questions
How to open a stuck water valve:
If you can’t turn a water valve in either direction, even with a wrench, it’s best to have a licensed plumber inspect it and offer expert advice. If you wrench too hard on an old, rusty water valve, you could break it right off. And if you haven’t already turned off the main water supply to the house, you could create a big mess for yourself.
When should you replace a water valve under a sink?
Water shut-off valves last an average of about 20 years. If the valve isn’t closed and opened periodically, it can “freeze” in the open position well before it reaches 20 years. Once the valve won’t twist, it’s definitely time to have it replaced. Additionally, if the valve has a drip that can’t be resolved by tightening the nut, the valve should be replaced right away.
