anyone know how to make a ball valve handle tighter
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:04:53 PM »
im having a issue with my ball valve on/off handle being super loose and it wont seal. i took it apart to make sure the 2 white nylon gaskets are sandwiching the ball which they are, after reassembling it and tighting it with 2 wrenches the on/off handle is still super loose and literally a gust of wind can open it, is it shot?

Sounds like it's either worn out or defective. They're cheap enough that I'd just replace it.
