I have to repair 2 JR Smith wall hydrants with 1/4 turn ceramic disc cartridges. They give you a deep well socket in the repair kit. I used my 3/8 extensions to loosen the existing cartridge, but I can't get it out! Any suggestions on what to use to pull the cartridge out the rest of the 14"? The cartidge is brass, so a magnet won't work. Best I can think of is to try and weld some extensions on a pair of needle nose pliers, but there has got to be a better way. What am I doing wrong?
No announcement yet.
