Question about Plumbing
The stop-**** is leaking @ the thread. how do I change this item?
Shut off all water to the house and drain the system at the lowest point. If you have an electric water heater it would be a good idea to turn the power off to it in case the heater is drained by the hydraulic action. If this occurs the element may burn out. Once this is done you can use a wrench on the nipple protruding through the wall and another wrench on the stop to unscrew it. Remember to use teflon tape or thread sealant compound when installing the new stop.
