If that makes you happy, sure. That doesn't help the OP though. I don't need to ask a plumber how your plumbing is configured... that is of no relavence to this thread.

You can get about any schedule gate valve on amazon.

For reference, if you want a ball valve, you can get them on amazon too:

It's ok to be wrong every now and then. It's not ok to act like that, though. This doesn't help you, the OP, or anyone reading this thread. If you'd like to continue this discussion, please feel free to PM me so that I can better help you understand the difference between the two.

I guess you just have to order them on line

gate vales

yes there is a big difference between gate valves and ball valves. The easiest way to tell the difference is gate valves have a screw down handle on the top and a ball valve has a single lever that when you push it down opens it up and when it is at a right angle, the valve is closed.

Don't worry what the site says, 9 out of 10 times whatever hardware store you go to they'll have it in stock.

I bought one of the really high quality spears valves it's a gate valve that comes apart so you can clean it and the handle rotates in a very smooth fashion.
