    Metal against metal, I'm sure I would have put something between the two ….. or maybe put the wrench on the lower part of the pillar valve…….

    What about this kind of pipe? Ever tried it? Is it a good ideia or does it put some kind of stress on the threads?

    If a valve stem does get bent or damaged, can it be replaced or does it ruin the entire valve? I imagine that may depend on the severity of the damage to the valve stem itself. Is it standard practice for VIP technicians to actually remove the valve correctly, the way you demonstrate?

    Damn good points made! Good video

    Do you approve of a common man like myself removing and replacing the valve. I recently bought a new tank and valve. Is there any issues with me assembling the valve to the tank?

    “I’ve taken” not “I’ve took” .
