    I put this Roman tub faucet together 8 years ago. It worked fine until a cartridge leak corroded the bonnet nut to the valve body. I had to replace the cold side valve body.
    I did a diy pressure test by hooking it up to a garden hose for about 45 minutes. Function tested everything, and checked for leaks.
    What is the chance of my joints leaking, even though I pressure tested them?
