    Hello! I have two questions. A.) I had a leak from my dishwasher years ago, but it seemed like a one-time thing and my husband at the time didn't know why it leaked. But this morning I heard a backup sound from the plumbing under my sink and water was in the cabinet under my sink and on the...

    Keeney Manufacturing Company 1/4 turn defective leaking ball valve

    I've got a 1/4 turn ball valve that's leaking. Looking at it, the shaft appears to be plastic and its dripping pretty good. Going to the local ACE and checking Lowes online, they sell what looks like the same valve. Is Keeney a generally good brand, or should I hold out for something higher...

    Old tub drain leaking

    We discovered a leak at a joint where the tub drains. House was built in 60s and the drain lines under the slab are cast iron. Not sure what going on where the leak is.. Looks like maybe copper to cast iron. The pipe with the weird flat flange must be part of a trap - holding water. Any...

    Water Softener Pipe Threads: Tapered or Straight?

    I installed a new softener and used 1 inch PEX to run new water lines. All went great, except for two very slow leaks between water softener connecter and the brass female pipe (NPT) to PEX fitting. Leaks about 1 drop every 5 minutes, tightening the fittings has not really changed the rate. The...

    Toilet Base Leaks When clogged

    So, I'm helping a friend with a toilet that was leaking around the base. The valve would stick open and there would be significant flooding from the base. The plumbing system is 30 years old, toilet is fairly 'new'. Before I started, I flushed - no leaking. I dumped a pail of water down to...

    Can this ball valve be repaired, or just replace?
