If it possible for a gate valve to go bad? I have a house that was winterized and before the summer I am redoing the bathroom. I had to take the valves off to get the vanity out. Upon going back to the house I discovered a trickle coming out of the open kitchen sin. The main valve which is a gate valve is completely off. So, it would seem that somehow water is getting past the closed main gate valve. Has anyone seen this and, or, is it even possible that the valve could be letting water past?
No announcement yet.
Bad gate valve?
