Repairing Brass T Plumbing Fitting Is Incomplete Without Expert Assistance

Suppliers across the globe are delivering distinct varieties of brass T / Sorten von Messing T and other plumbing valves and fittings at competitive prices. The ball valve types include one packing washer that functions as a sealant and seal the handle. These are recognized by a horizontal handle that rotates a finely machined brass ball within the valve that regulates the water flow when turned 90 degrees. Brass plumbing stop valves are manufactured by engineers and they also include two washers in the design. One washer seals the round handle, while other seals the valve body from water flow when the handle is turned clockwise.

Important Steps for Repairing-

  • Check the valve for leaking by turning it on and off or three times to detach any sediment that may be the reason behind poor sealing of the washers. Once you fasten the valve, check for leakage.
  • Turn the gland nut directly beneath the handle to quell a packing nut leak. Make sure you have turned off the valve before performing this step. But do check that the main water supply is on. This is how you will easily monitor the leak. If you cannot fix the leakage, you can take help of professional and replace your packing washer. If your faucet drips, you need to replace your stem washer.
  • Before performing replacement of any washer, you must turn off the water supply to your brass plumbing fitting.
  • Remove the handle on the valve. You will find a small screw holding it in place. Remove it using screwdriver and pull the handle off.

You will find a washer at the bottom of the stem. Remove the washer by unscrewing the screw that is holding it. Replace the stem washer.
  • Insert the stem back into the body of valve and fasten the bonnet once you place the stem washer at right place. Tight the packing nut once the packing washer is placed in its location.
