Thread: wacked pipe

  1. #1

    Default wacked pipe

    okay, so I get my new therm mixer soldered in, out of the top port up about 6in a valve. no pipe yet on the output side. the valve has the plastic rough in depth extension install. the mixer has threaded ports.

    I'm on a ladder working on shower head fitting and while getting down I wack the plastic extension pretty hard with my knee.... I'm sure it flexed the pipe to some point, and now I'm worried that I stressed or fractured the joints and may get a leak. Its been under pressure for two days and so far so good.

    Is this something I should be concerned with and should redo that section, or just consider it stress tested and move on??
    Thanks,
    Scott

    Default valve

    You probably did more damage to your knee than to the valve. If it is not leaking and you do not see any bent piping, don't worry about it.
