Main water gate valve

Recommended Posts

I broke the threaded shaft that turns inside the blade. Probably just put in a new threaded piece and good to go?

 

I had to shut off the water. I broke the 35+ year old shut-off at the dish washer. Then the 35+ year old main broke.

Slapped the packing nut back on. Now we can live comfortably till I fix it or the plumber comes.

The last time I had my buddy over to do some Plumbing work for me I asked him how much the bill would be he said "I don't know that's not my department."

 

I never got a bill for that one, but it did buy him a bottle of Crown which I handed it to him today. I asked him if there would be a bill for today, he said the same thing. So I'll probably end up buying another bottle of Crown.

 

Clarity Dammit.

What is that, some kind of crimp on fittings?

Yeah, apparently some jurisdictions/Proffessionals don't allow them.

The cats pajamas of copper.

Expensive tools to make them work, but they do work well.

He said the rig was $3,500, but turned weeks worth of work into days.
