Your other option is call your landlord and have him fix the leaky plumbing.Part of the deal with this place, is that I take care of all this kind of stuff.
I've never heard of old copper snapping? I'll wait for others to reply.The copper pipe is about 60 years old... it's pretty corroded...
A flared shutoff with copper coming out of the wall?
Even I haven't seen that
I know. It's pretty ancient stuff.
Actually, it's not really 1/2" flare coming out of the wall. It's a regular IP style fitting. It just so happens that the thread exactly fits a 1/2" Flare line. I tried using a flare line (like for a gas dryer or something like that) but it doesn't seal because of the shape of the flare line fitting at the end.
I was also thinking that it I could find some sort of solid, one-piece adapter to fit onto the angel stop, I could go from there. Does anyone know where I could get an adapter that has one side 1/2" FEMALE flare?
