In response to Re: leaking ball valve
: I recently tried shutting a ball valve and notice that there is a small amount of water that is leaking from the valve. Is there a way of adjusting the valve to stop the leak?

If you are sure it's not a thread or solder leak, some ball valves have valve stem packing nuts under the handle which can be tightened slightly. I have seen inexpensive ball valves leak at a point where the valve body is assembled.
Good Luck. e-plumber
