    Gate valves leaking due to solder/tinning flux

    I just built an outdoor shower using gate valves to control the flow at each point (hot/cold/shower head/foot hose) and they all seem to have a very slight leak.

    ACCOR flowtite valves

    Hello, I know the reputation these valves have and they should be replaced. I wanted to know if they are closed can the pressure cause these to leak where you pull the valve? It is a very slow drip. Here is a little back story. Last week my bathroom developed a smell. The only way I can...

However, I don't want to spend excess money on T-type ball valves that have the ability to alter water flow by the handle. Instead, what I would like specifically is a pipe/tube fitting that...

    Brass and other metal valves lubricant

    I sprayed all the assorted hot and cold water valves in my basement's metal pipes with WD-40, not realizing WD stands for water displacement and that may not be the best thing to use, since it does not leave a lasting lubrication on the valve seals.
