Re: Correcting water in connection
Buy a brass tee, a brass nipple the same length as the galvanized nipple below the tee, and a brass union to fit on the copper tube above the tee.
1- disconnect at the union on the PR valve.
2-Unscrew the horizontal pipe from the galvanized tee.
3- cut the galvanized nipple just below the tee with a hack saw or sawzall.
4- Unscrew the tee from the upper pipe
5- Unscrew the galvanized nipple from the lower shut off.
6- cut the tube going to the upper shutoff.
Install the brass nipple into the brass tee and screw the other end into the lower shutoff.
Screw the tube going to the PR valve into the tee and connect the union to the PRV.
Install the new union on the cut tube and screw the one end into the top of the tee
Install the other half of the union on the part of the cut tube going to the upper shut off and connect the two halves of the union together.
