Last week I replaced the crappy plastic valve with a good quality brass valve . The plastic valves are extremely difficult to shut off and I can see why the handles break .

Used Kiley & Sons and the cost was $164.78

Well worth doing, IMO

I agree, to have a plumber replace a $.50. handle they’ll probably have to pay a service call which could be 30 to $40. & I’m sure the plastic handle from the plumber will cost 5 to $10. Surely Home Depot, Lowe’s or Ace has a replacement handle. I wouldn’t think you would have to be a rocket scientist to change it.

For each of us, life is a journey. Where has your life taken you? Your entire life leads to the next step, the chance to define yourself by where you're headed, instead of where you stand. Today is the day you introduce yourself to your destiny.
