Replacing JUST Handwheel??


Hi there, I have a very easy question for someone with plumbing knowledge.

I have a home that was ding'd by the home inspector for having a broken handwheel on the cold water shutoff valve to the water heater.

THE VALVE IS FUNCTIONAL...I ONLY WANT TO REPLACE THE HANDWHEEL.

Can this be done? I really don't want to get into an entire valve replacement. Where can I get a spare handwheel? Looks similar to:

Amazing what those home inspectors will ding you on.

The good news is that you can probably buy a handwheel at a plumbing supply house. Take the old one with you.

If nothing else, an entire new valve is only a few bucks at any home center...You could buy one and swap out the broken part.
