    How do I change a leaking Valve in a laundry box?

  • #2
    Post a photo of it.

    I'm doing 1 this morning that will require the bottom of the wall to be cut open as the single handle combined valve is shot and the replacement is not compatible with the existing unit.

        In theory, you need to cut the wall open below the valve and swap them out. If you're lucky they are threaded into female adapters.

        But if you can find the same units, you should be able to swap out the bib from the adapter inside the box without opening the wall.

        I've had luck before.

        Rick.
