I just replaced our garden faucet and now I have an awful time trying to turn it off or on. Is there some way to make it easier to turn the knob??
Loosen the packing nut on the valve stem.
I replaced mine with a ball valve, 1/4 turn for on and off, that is a lot easier than turn, turn........
Thank you for your suggestions.I like the ball valve 1/4 turn. It will make it easier for my elderly mother to use too!
If you replace the original packing with Teflon packing it will be very easy to turn the knob.
I replaced my mothers faucet with the ball valve.It works great for her.Thank You!! I will now work on the other faucet to try all your sugestions.
Thank You Again
