I just replaced a leaking mixing valve for a shower. Before I did the
repair, I turned off the hot and cold water at the shut-off valves. I
think the seal of one of the shut-off valves is worn. After operating
it, the shut-off valve is now leaking -- at a rate of 1 drop every 3 to
4 seconds. I have placed a container under the valve to catch the leak.
Does anyone know what I can do to stop the leak for tonight, short of
shutting off water to the whole house? Thanks.
