When the handle is in the same position as the entrance and exit, the valve is open.. The stops on the valve are visible and cast so that you can see if they are hitting the handle. If it wont turn make sure you are turning it the right direction.

One cold water valve under bar sink

You people are hard to help. If it is not galvanized pipe, you can put a sharkbite cap on it. Pipe composition is kind of important detail.

We have a brand new rheem 40 gal elec water heater, after installation we have water leaking from the base of the relief valve, pooling up in the plastic fitting and making it way over the side all over...

Water heater should be set in a drip pan.
Otherwise, put 1 gallon bucket under TP release pipe to catch water.

When you say relief valve, I assum you are talking about brass valve located on top of tank or near top of tank. This is TP valve and a pipe connects to this valve and runs down to within 6" of bottom of tank. TP valve has a small lever on it.
If you are talking about tank drain valve located at bottom of tank, then add a comment.
Following information is for TP valve.

Dripping TP valve can be caused by 3 different thing:

1) Obstruction inside TP valve. Open TP valve for a moment to flush away particles and slowly lower lever back down. See if water stops dripping, if not, then replace TP valve

2) Defective TP valve: replace TP valve. Turn off electricity to water heater. Let heater cool for several hours so you do not get scalded. Close shut off valve located above tank on cold side. Open tub spout to relieve pressure, open tank drain or open TP valve and empty water below TP valve level. If TP is located on top of tank, not much water has to be drained. Tank is under press when hot, so be careful. Put teflon tape on new valve and install with big pipe wrench by turning clockwise until TP valve is very tight.

3) Overheating tank. TP valve is temperature-pressure valve. If tank water is over 150 degrees, the TP valve starts drizzling hot water to relieve tank pressure.
Lower tank pressure two different ways:
a) turn down thermostat
b) install expansion tank on incoming cold water line

My thermostatic mixer shower will not turn off

he probably put it together wrong.
there is usually a blue gasket inside for testing purposes, if that is not removed, the valve will not turn off.

Toto toilet: refill valve opens and closes rapidly

I believe you have a high water pressure going to the
tank. Minimize the water volume going to your tank. This is done by fully closing the inlet valve under the tank. Then open about 1/4 to 1/3 of the inlet valve. To do this, count the number of turns to get it full close from full open position. For 1/4, divide the number of turns by 4 and divide it by 3, for 1/3 open. Hope this will solve your problem.

I have water pouring out of a pipe outside that is coming from my hot water heater.there is a cap missing but i'm afraid if i put the cap on the pipes will burst.what could be the problem?the water heater...

That pipe is connected to something called the T&P (temperature and pressure) relief valve. The pipe that connects to the valve should be run to a drain line so that the water goes somewhere other than all over the floor, but often it just ends a couple of feet from the valve. It's possible the valve has opened because the pressure in the tank is over its limit, but more likely it's the valve's fault. If the new heater was supplied without a T&P, the installer may have used the one from your old heater. Over time the spring inside the valve weakens. Then it can't hold the pressure from the new heater properly. A new valve is under $10 at home improvement stores or larger hardware stores. It just screws into the water heater, so it's simple to replace it if you have a pipe wrench. Turn off the water into the heater and remove the old valve. Use Teflon tape or pipe dope on the threads of the new valve (the store will sell that too), tighten it into the heater, then turn the water back on. That should end your leak. If it doesn't and the T&P valve still opens, you'll need to have a plumber check the water pressure in your home.
