My daughter had some plumbing work done in 2005 by a national company. (Rhymes with Mr. Hooter). They repaired a leak that was inside a wall behind her water heater. Last week she noticed some dampness in the same area and had someone else look at the problem. The attached picture is what they found. The leak was coming from where a fitting was glued to a 3/4" cpvc line. This was on the water heater inlet side. The same type of "repair" is still on the outlet side of the heater. This leak had been going on for quite a while and there is some mold under her house from it. I'm wondering if this was a correct way to do this work. I am not a plumber but even I would not use glue to connect brass to cpvc.
No announcement yet.
Is this right?
