Smoking Is The Last Thing On Your Mind.
The toilet supply valve handle got broken off last night and flooded the bathroom.
One person was trying to hold it in while the other was trying to duct tape it.
The water was finally turned off and I was able to remove the valve. Unfortunately, I don't own a puller and the brass ferrule that compresses the shutoff to the copper pipe was stuck. I was hoping the new shutoff valve would work with the old nut trapped on the pipe. Someone went to the hardware store for the valve and a new supply line while I prepared for their return.
I was able to get it started but, it sure didn't want to stop spinning on the pipe meaning there was no seal.
I kept at it, and kept at it, and kept at it, until it stopped moving and made the seal.
Your quit requires you keep at it until you "make the seal."
It's not like you're trapped working in a foot of space between a bathtub and a toilet while trying to use two wrenches at the same time. :-)
You Are The Only One Who Can Make You Smoke.
