I learned the (usual) hard way to never use sch 40 pvc mipts in to brass. Sch 80 only.
What happened? Nobody has ever said anything about it.
Think about it.
The only thing I can think of based on another repair I had to do, would be the face right between the end of the threads and the shoulders.
I've had nothing but problems with these (made overseas) brass iso valves. Discovered this cutie today. The valve is ten years old, in hindsight, I should have put them in with unions, this will be a fun repair, since I need it to isolate two pumping systems.
No unions? What, are you a hack or something??
Even the high rollers fail to think things through. I can only blame myself.
Well Boss, it appears that the time has come to unionize.
The system, that is.

I think by the time you upgrade the specs on a gate valve, it might as well turn into one of the classic "sprinkler angle (or straight) valves" we used the long keys on.
The subs ( ex-ex owners of my biz) are suggesting Ford curb stops; not a bad idea, either.
