Question

The stem of my gate valve that stops the water coming in at the house is bent, so i can't shut my water off there. Can I replace just the stem and or gate or do I need to replace the whole valve? Which looks difficult!

You will have to replace the valve all together, dig it out, it will be much eaiser to deal with, this time install a good ball valve, these will last alot longer, and there more reliable.
