How to stop a leaking stop valve by Mal Jones 19th july 2011.

How to stop a leaking stop valve depends on if the stop valve is actually passing water or the packing gland is leaking .
Of its the stop valve passing not allowing the supply to be shut off. This can be easily fixed by turning of the supply at your boundry, removing the valve body and replacing the washer fitted.
If its the packing gland leaking tightening the nut by half a turn normally fixes this problem.
