The water that enters your house begins as rain and reaches you via either a well or, for most homes, a municipal water supply system. It comes into the building under a pressure of between 60 and 100 pounds per square inch and immediately passes a main shutoff valve and then a water meter (if you are being charged for your water consumption). The entrance pipe is usually 3/4 inch or 1 inch in diameter. Once inside the house it becomes the cold water main, which is normally 3/4 inch in diameter. For the short run across your basement ceiling, the cold water main travels alone. Then it reaches the house water heating device, which it feeds into with a 3/4-inch branch line. The hot water main is a 3/4-inch pipe that begins at the house heater and continues throughout the house to each of the fixtures in the building. In nearly every instance you will find the hot and cold water lines running parallel to each other. When the pipes run vertically for a distance of at least one floor, they are known as risers. The smaller pipes that lead away from the main lines to supply each fixture are known as branch lines. Throughout the water supply system you will discover a myriad of valves, which show themselves as fittings with wheels or handles attached to them. Most are globe valves, and they operate like any globe-type faucet. They have packing nuts and packing, or packing washers, and stem washers at the bottom of their threaded stems. The reason you will spend very little time having to repair a leak in the valves is that for most of their lifetime they are left open, so their working parts do not have much opportunity to become worn. Then again, they may be left unused for so long that they become corroded and locked in their open position, which is annoying when that one time you want to close them comes around and you have to put a wrench on the handle before you can turn it. It should be noted that some valves, particularly the gate valve, which is often used as the main shutoff valve at the house service entrance, can take a long, long time to close. Gate valves are designed so that when they are open, the wedge at the bottom of the stem is completely retracted from the flow of water through the valve body. This makes them less resistant to water flow. Consequently, when you begin turning its handle you have a long thread to close before the gate is completely shut. Don't give up. Keep turning until the handle will not rotate anymore. At that point you can be sure that no water is flowing through the pipe.
