Trying to Replace a Heated Towel Rail and Valves Help Please

Postby HMikeH » Sun Jun 10, 2018 4:08 pm

Hi all,

I hope someone in this forum can help me out. We have just repainted our bathroom and bought a new towel rail (same dimensions as the last) to replace an old white rusty one. Managed to get the old one off, however in doing so there is a small drip comin from the lower part of the valve (the nut that attaches to the pipe). Popped into a diy store and they said yep easy to replace (as they said it sounds like it needs replacing), bought some new chrome ones off i went. However when i unscrew that nut water will not stop coming out, even tho the water is off? How can i resolve this? I have looked high and low for some sort of isolator but cant find one. Any advice or help would be great! Thanks.
