Hello,

Just bought a house, the valve on the 3/4" washing machine tee is leaking (capped for now). I don't want to replace the tee, I would just like to screw in a new valve section on to the end of the tee to bypass the broken valve. Struggling to find the right component - can anyone help point me in the right direction?

Cheers

ER,nope!
ran it through my head several times and at least 6 scenarios of what parts may be involved came to mind.
A picture would narrow this down to about 60 seconds if you could provide one then may be able to tell you exactly.
stick a picture up and lets see!
cheers

Here's a picture of the valve that's leaking (the cold one). I don't want to replace the whole section if I can avoid it - I just want to screw a working valve onto the end of the existing thread. It's a standard washing machine inlet size 3/4". Any thoughts?

Cheers
