I have a gate valve below the water meter and a globe valve above. The globe valve needs new washer and packing which is easy enough but the gate valve has not been turned in a very long time and is pretty stiff. I don't want to screw anything up and I've seen gate valves break or get stuck half open or be otherwise problematic so what I want to know is there anything to do that will give me a better chance of not creating a huge problem? Or should I just let the globe valve weep until it corrodes itself drippless?
