    lets play a game.......

    Its called how far can you back the setter off, without taking it all the way off, to get dope on the threads and get the leak to stop.

    Its a dangerous risky game to play. Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose. A loss is much more painful than the joy of victory though.


    On a serious note, these setters are not even hand tight. The ball valves were not either for that matter.

    Im going to go out on a limb and guess that most all of the ball valves and circuit setters were only installed hand tight.

    Schedule 80 pvc would not have been my first choice for the loop either.

    Only did two the day I took the pic. Building is coming up on 20 years so I foresee more calls relating to these leaking.
