Tampa Bay Plumbers replaced 5 ball valves at The Pinnacle building on Thursday. The project went very well even though it was a lot of work to get done in one day. The valves were all 2.0 inch gate valves that had corroded and began leaking. Tampa Bay Plumbers installs ball valves because they are much easier to turn and work for a long time once they are installed. Gate valves are prone to breaking and freezing in place. Gate valves can cause a really easy job to turn into a nightmare when the gate breaks in the shut position. Always use extreme caution if you are going to turn off the water using a gate valve. You should not attempt to turn a gate valve if it feels frozen in place.
