    Clawfoot tub supply line slipping, buckling, leaking

    I'm restoring an old house and think I made a mistake in the installation of rigid supply lines for the clawfoot tub. To be honest, I couldn't find a good guide on how to attach these rigid lines to PEX, so I improvised. The problem I'm having is that the new rigid supply lines occasionally...

    I successfully replaced a stop valve!

    After seeing Terry's advice to always replace corrugated supply lines, and the info about sleeve pullers, I thought I'd replace the one on the downstairs toilet where I replaced the fill valve but not the supply line.
