First attempt at plumbing fumble
I attempted today to replace two stop valves underneath my kitchen sink. But once completed there was no water pressure from my kitchen sink anymore.
Here are the steps I preformed. Hopefully someone will be able to tell me what I did wrong.
-Once I turned off the water I disconnected the supply line to the faucet.
-I cut the copper pipe behind the old valve. Then I brushed off the end of the exposed pipe.
-I placed the compression nut on the exposed pipe then slipped the ferrule in.
-I applied ptfe thread seal tape to all the threads. ~1 layer, some overlap on the end.
-Then I screwed the valve into the nut and the supply line into the valve and into the sink (replaced the line as well).
Then I turned the water back on, opened the valves and turned on the sink. All I get is a trickle.
The valves are compression in and compression out if that makes a difference.
My question is what did I do wrong? Did I tighten them too tight? I tried loosening some but still just a trickle.
