comment Why won't my new water valves turn on?
Alright took off work early to take care of this before my wife gets home. Turned the water off, let the pipes drain through sink in basement, put in wrench on the valve to hold it, grabbed the handle with vise grips and turned. It took a fair amount of effort but it gave way and opened. I was afraid that turning that hard would ruin it. Now it turns back and forth easy and smooth. Thanks for the help, never new they could be so "sticky".

Tried a fair amount of force they don't budge not even a little. I tried both directions to turn but just in case but I'm following the arrows so I should be turning the right way.

Thought they turned before hand I could be wrong though.
