1/4 turn valve or a multi-turn valve


Does it matter which water valve I use on a new toilet install?

1/4 turn.
Less likly to have the stem leak and if the waters overflowing the toilet it will shut off much faster.

Albert Brown opened a small shop in Chicago in 1901, producing just a few plumbing fixtures and lamp shade frames. Ten years later, the product lines were growing quickly and Chicago Faucet started selling through local plumbing wholesalers.

When Mr. Brown invented the Quaturn Cartridge in 1913,
Chicago Faucet not only made plumbing history, they became a plumbing icon.
