Bathroom Remodeling – Los Altos – Quarter Turn Angle Stops
The lead article (the table of contents if you will) is titled Bathroom Remodeling.
The prior article spoke of the importance of changing angle stops when doing a bathroom remodeling project, as well as the importance of using good high quality angle stops.
A good high quality angle stop was defined as a quarter turn ball valve that is made in the USA.
You want a ball valve because it closes easier than other types of valves, and tends to last longer.
You want an angle stop that is made in the USA because the ones from China have (this is anecdotal evidence from me) of about 1 in 50, which is unacceptably high.
It’s gotten to the point that when I need angle stops for a customer and I can’t get to a specialty plumbing shop for whatever reason, I buy twice as much as I need and return the extra later.
I prefer that over finding I bought a bad one and have to make a second trip to the store to finish the current task.
Anyway… take a look at the angle stops in the picture and notice the part your turn is a little lever, not a handle.
That lever only turns one quarter of the way around.
The difference between closed and open is one quarter turn of the lever.
That is why they are called quarter turn angle stops.
By definition, quarter turn angle stops contain ball valves, because the way you operate a ball valve is with a quarter turn lever.
