Leaking in-line shutoff valve
Posted by Howie on August 08, 1998 at 17:05:26:
I recently had to replace the washers in the shower faucets. I turned off the water at a pair of hot and cold in-line shutoff valves. After turning the water back on, it seemd that there is a slight drip at both shutoff valves, from around the valve stem. I know the best fix would be to open up the valve and replace the washers, but they are a bit old, and I may have more trouble if I open them up. Is there any kind of sealer that I can put around the valve stem to stop the leak? Thanks for your help. Great web site.
