    Default old main shutoff valve

    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone can tell me anything about this valve and how it works

    The city cannot find the outdoor main shut off valve to the house so I dont want to possibly break this valve or disturb it and run into a situation where I cannot shut the water down without freezing the pipe.

    the knob at the top is very stiff and cannot be turned without great force. is it just an old gate valve?

    thanks!
