I know there was a thread a while back about Brasscraft 1/4 turn valves w/stem problems.I went to change out a kitchen fct. for a friend today,he had the water shut off to the fct.for a year,as soon as I opened the angle stops they leaked like a sieve,both hot and cold. These photos show a new OCR19(these are not 1/4 turn valves) on the right and a 10 year old OCR19 out of the house on the left,notice how the plastic stem is almost 1/3 gone on the old,has this been a problem before on these valves?House is on Lake Michigan water out of the Jardine filtration plant.
