Currently my main water shut off valve is soldered using a 3/4 globe valve. However the stem is leaky and I am thinking of replacing it.
Is it a good idea to cut it out and replace it using a SharkBite ball valve? Are SharkBite valves good to use for a main shut off valve replacement in a house or will the pressure deteriorate its O-ring much too quickly? I do not want to solder a joint on as I am a newbie.
