I have a leaky handle on a valve in my basement! It has a flower type knob on it and it leaks. I would like it changed or repaired. What type of valve do you suggest to have it replaced with?

There are many types of valves out there and those knob or flower looking handle valves are kind of an old technology. For your home, I would suggest a lever handle valve. They are durable and give you a sound shut off with just a quarter of a turn! In the event you have CPVC piping in your home, I suggest transitioning to a lever handle brass valve. The CPVC quarter turn valves tend to freeze up over time and are often useless in about 2 years.
Reach out and have us come out and change that valve for you!
