    Re: Washing machine valves

    I have had atleast 5 Oatey valves in the last month crack. On the last one I filed a claim with Oatey we'll see what happens. I sent the the bill for labor and materials.
    Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.

      On new installations I like the Ox Box by Souix Chief. It makes for a much easier and more secure installation. I'm not sure how they will hold up over time but seem to be a well-built valve.
      Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

        Well Oatey paid up. They said it was a one time thing and that next time it would have to go through home owners insurance.

        Looks like the customer is getting their money back.

          Like I stated, property owners are in extreme panic mode when I get called out when these catastrophic failures occur.

          It's a poor design of the construction of the valve, add in random use of the valve, calcium buildup and they find out the hard way when it breaks.


          I'll be replacing these valves for years...
