|In response to Re: sillcock leaks a LOT|
There are tools that will "clean" a valve seat.
10" is a ways to go though. It may be easier to replace the sillcock, if the end is already exposed. Terry
: I recently soldered the 1/2" copper pipe near the sillcock. After turning the faucet on and off, I realized it no longer seals when off. I replaced the washer but it still doesn't shut off. I believe I got it so hot that a part of the washer melted to the valve seat. OR the seat is plastic and distorted.
: Anyone ever heard of a plastic valve seat??
: Anyone know how I can clean melted plastic off of a metal seat that is 10" deep?
: Or should I replace the sillcock?
: Thanks, Shannon
