I had to drill out the stainless steel screws and then I find THIS!! Drilled and tapped for "new" screws.
why didnt you use a PVC test T???
Because I thought this would match the decor better.why didnt you use a PVC test T???
Could electrolysis be causing any of these issues???just a thoughtI was swapping out a washing machine and shutoff today and when I put the water back on and found 3 more pinholes. We've been here a couple times over the years because of her acidic water and she finally wanted a quote on a neutralizer a month ago when one of our guys replaced some more stuff. Two of the pinholes were on either side of an old globe valve to the left of this new PP tee our guy put in. I soldered my coupling that close to the tee Wet rag.
I didn't bother putting another valve in because it just wasn't necessary. The center of my coupling is where one pinhole was. With the pipe in such bad shaped I didn't want to put another PP fitting on and make that new tee leak. You can see the 90 from two years ago is already green. The other pinhole was a 1/4" from that 45 so I took the old nipple out.
The old symmons washer valve was all green and screwed to a piece of mdf but was just hanging there, never screwed to the wall. I put in a watts, hopefully the balls will hold up better than o-rings.

it says LEAD solder..you can only use that on heat lines...
lots of people have no idea what they are selling on ebay, they buy up lots of stuff and just list it on ebay to sell...way cheaper than its worth..
Do you know what that bolt in the center is for? I usually find them in a grocery store chain that we service. I'm guessing, but I think the bolt is to support the brass clean out cover. Especially when there is a chance of heavy traffic - forklifts, pallete jacks.......
