|In response to Re: Angle Valve Problems|
My impression that you should have called a plumber to start with. Now it appears you have a major job, unless it is easier than you have indicated. Yes call a plumber before you have a flood. I hope you have not had one before this message gets to you.
: :The brass sleeve wouldn't go far enough inside the existing nut to allow the valve to screw on. I couldn't match the threads up.
: : : I just replaced an angle valve and supply line to my toilet. (The pipe from the wall is copper tubing.) The valve comes with a brass compression sleeve that is supposed to go over the copper pipe (and inside the valve when screwed down on the nut.) Unfortunately, I could not insert the brass sleeve in far enough to allow the valve to be screwed on, so instead, to prevent leaks, I inserted a rubber o-ring inside the valve, and this seems to work. Is there any danger in using the o-ring instead of the brass sleeve? Thanks.
