During a recent washing machine replacement, I had a heck of a time taking off the hot water hose from the shut off valve. It was so corroded that the guts of the shut of came out (quarter turn shut off). After a run to turn off main hot supply at water heater and clean up, I noticed that the inside of the hose/shut off piece was so corroded that it would never come off easily.
I then look at all of my hot supply’s and they are all like that near the shut offs. At least green corrosion. I look at at settings on softner and re-read all of the manual for the softener (from what I can tell) and its set up right.
Any thoughts/cures for this? I have not seen on any inspections yet, but none have had a softener. I am going to poll the rest of my neighbors to see what they find. We are in newer subdivision.
How about any suggestions to clients in a report that I might find this happening to?
Happy St Patty’s Day!!
