I have replaced a shutoff valve several times. I like the globe valves
with a handle that only has to go 90-degrees from full off to full on.
However, on very cold nights they seem to crack and a small leak
results. Is there a special valve for use in freezing environments or
am I just unlucky?
Yes, and no...
There are long-stem valves to keep the seat inside the wall (assuming
this is a through wall spigot)...
Depending on the application, there's probably something else more
suited if it isn't. Post the actual application and undoubtedly get
more specific responses...
