+1. We are trying to sell our house. We had a open house scheduled for 1 to 3 yesterday. The downstairs bathroom faucet had a slow drip so I decided I had time to replace it. I got it all in and then turned on the valve at the sink and it had a leak. So I get a replacement valve from the home center, turn off the main water shutoff (one of two I come to discover later) and replace the valve. I go to loosen the main shutoff and it comes completely apart. Gallons of water everywhere in my basement. Fortunately there was the other shutoff valve that was before it so we managed to get it closed before the basement was entirely soaked but there was a serious effort to get it all cleaned up before the open house. I don't think I've ever felt so panicked as when that water started spewing out.
