Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Sometimes they don't seal well against their own seats.
First and most importantly, I AM NOT A PLUMBER. While I've installed 10-15 sets of these valves, 9 out of 10 create a perfect seal, but that one that does not leak, and you can reseat it as many times as you want, with no positive effect.
I'm not going to put 100% of the fault on the valve, as these valves go into an apartment complex that is 50+ years old, and the plumbing is in horrible condition.
I am recommending these because they are well made, and easy to install (with the proper tools).
They do not hold up well to hard water, and will leak after only a couple months unless the water is treated. The design could be improved, but for my purposes they are the only valve that fits the ID of the plumbing.
