I was wondering if anyone here has had any trouble with Wolverine Brass 1/2" od quarter turn angle stops leaking. I have had five out of the last ten or so that I have used recently leak. They leak at the compression end and most times after tightening will continue to leak.Today I finally got upset enough and tried to wrap a little tefflon tape on the ferrul and use a bit of dope on the threads to maybe get a little more turn out of it. It still leaked. The ferrul never tightens up enough to crimp the copper tubing. I can usually pull the ferrul off.I did another test on a scrap piece of tubing. I took a new stop and tightened it until I was sure the compression nut would split to see if it would make a crimp on the tubing. It did but I was still able to spin the ferrul.I am about to stop ordering Wolverine valves. Any similar experiences?
No announcement yet.
