  • reuse 50 yrs old valves or not?

    I am planning add zones and modify existing pipe setting. I am thinking put two valves on each CI baseboard. I have about ten 50 yrs old shut-off valves from the existing piping. Should I reuse them or replace them with new ball valves?

    Shut-off valves with that age are still good enough for another 20yrs?

      50 year old valves make good doorstops. Or you can use them to weigh down a crab trap.
      Other than that they belong in a museum or scrap yard.
