In response to Re: water shut-off valve-stem broken
The working parts that are broken are unique to eaach valve, and even if you could find a valve just like it, which is unlikely, the manufacturers often change patterns so they will not interchange anyway. Replace the valve.

: The valve-stem on the main water shut-off keeps turning without shuting off the water. Do I have to replace the whole valve which is sweat-soldered to copper pipe, or can I replace the stem only. I think it is a gate valve that has a screw to close the gate. The turn screw is severed so I can't shut off the water when turning the handle.

: Any advice or experiences with this is appreciated
