    Hi all.

    I'm not too savvy with soldering yet and I have a few old 3/4 gate valves that are locked up that I need to replace. Plus they aren't in a great spot for the torch regardless of who's doing the work.

    Are compression valves reliable especially in a visible area? And which brands would you recommend? I can't seem to find an Apollo or Watts so wondering if there are others that are good.

    BTW Are gate valves usually full port?

    Thanks!

    That Apollo would work but doesn't look to be available from anyone online who will ship. Wonder if it's discontinued now?

    What other brands are good valves?

    In stock in the US. You seem to have messaging disabled.

    I don't know what quality JAG is.

    http://www.keystonevalves.ca/apollo-valves/ could give you a quote.

    Thanks. I need it to be full port and I think I'd prefer compression over SB fittings.

    I've sent them a note thank you. I think JAG is a house brand.

    What other brands other than Apollo are recommended?
