Can you rebuild a shut-off valve?
I have a water shut-off valve mounted on a pipe in between my water meter and my house. This can shut off the water to the whole house, without me going to the sidewalk, and shutting off the main supply. It is a simple valve with the "wagon wheel" style handle that you turn to control the water flow. Water has started to drip out of the valve, where the handle is. The valve is soldered in place to the copper pipe, but it seems to have a nut where the leak is. If I shut the main off, and unscrew that nut, is there some sort of seal that I can replace? An o-ring, or something?
Thanks for your support!!!!
I ask the stupid questions.....but I expect the smart answers.
