It was very easy to install as I was replacing an older valve. Nice and easy to turn on or off with only a quarter turn of the valve. The valve I replaced needed a couple of full turns to turn the water on or off, and it was leaking a little bit. This valve is under my kitchen sink and controls the water for the dishwasher.

Great replacement part over the conventional valve with the larger handle. The conventional value generally uses a rubber stop inside which over time gets hard and will not shut the water off. This valve uses a ball valve inside and I have never had a problem with one. I recommend this valve.

The valve failed after only about 7 years. The connection between the knob and the valve broke internally, leaving no way to turn the water off. Had to replace the valve.

I had to replace the shut off valve in our kitchen sink when I replaced out faucet. We have well water and is very hard. I am assuming that with the hard water and rust, the valve finally gave in. When replacing the faucet, I was able to shut the valves, but when turning them back on, it started to leak. No amount of tightening helped. So I decided it was time for these valves to be replaced. I replaced both hot and cold valves, even though only the hot was leaking. It went in well - I had to use the existing nut on the old valve and it fit nicely. No leaks and it looks nice. And it's only a quarter turn valve, not like the old valve where it was like a screw valve, requiring several turns. I guess because of our water, it would be a good maintenance to turn these valves on and off at least once a year.
