    Only two years old it should come right off. But there is always a chance of something going wrong when you start working on things.

    Thank you. Any chance of stripping the threads or part of it breaking in the tank during the repair?

    Hello. I am female and pipe-challenged. I have a hairline crack around the ball of the brass on-off stem of the drain valve on my 2 year-old AO Smith electric water heater. It is not dripping but wet to the touch with mild corrosion. Rather than go through the costly labor of valve replacement, could the corrosion be sanded away and epoxy carefully pushed into the crack? Thanks

      That probably won't hold. I am afraid you are going to need a new valve.

    I bought a tub only valve/faucet set from overseas. The schematic shows the water flow going up, over, then down. Can this work here?
