Okay more condo bullshit. I'm in the middle of renovation our kitchen. Pretty much everything is ripped apart except for the sink. Last night my friend who is doing most of the install work was looking under the sink and found that we are going to have a hell of a problem taking out and putting in new cabinets unless we cut off the pipe past the sink valves. Not a problem normally but the water main in our storage room has two valves. One loose, one kind of green and stuck. The maintenance guy is coming out on Monday morning. If the water valves are okay and can be closed we are in business. If not, we actually would have to wait until May 1st to replace the with new valves because to shut off the water to our unit, we would have to shut off the water to the whole building which would turn the heat off which can't be done. Does anyone know of a good way to loosen the valves without destroying them?
