Leaking gate valve

Leaking pipe under kitchen sink

Here Re-Store Services team removed a leaking gate valve and installed around 1 fit 1/2 pipe and two couplings. The cold water gate valve under the sink had burst and caused flooding.

Understanding a Leaking Gate Valve

A leaking gate valve can lead to water damage and higher utility bills. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Identify the Leak: Check if the valve is fully open or closed. Leaks often occur when the valve is not completely shut.
  2. Temporary Fix: Use pipe tape or a pipe clamp to stop the leak temporarily. This can help minimize water damage until a permanent solution is implemented.
  3. Replace if Necessary: Persistent leaks may indicate a faulty valve that needs replacement. It’s essential to address this promptly to avoid further issues.
  4. Professional Help: For a thorough inspection and repair, it’s best to consult a licensed plumber. They can accurately diagnose the problem and provide a lasting solution.
