Float Valve Laguna Float Valve
It works but we're having problems with it leaking
I bought this a couple of months ago and just decided we should try to install it last Sunday. My husband is an engineer and very detail oriented and it took him quite a while to get it installed. Then it leaked. So he took it apart and re-installed it and it didn't leak any more. Wednesday it started leaking again. Engineer husband was out of town so I just turned off the water to it. Today he said it looks like there is a seam in the plastic and it is leaking through the seam, not from a connection. So he took it to the hardware store and they recommended silicone on the seam. Tomorrow he'll re-install it again, after the silicone dries. I sure hope this stops the leaking.
The float valve worked perfectly for the 3 days before it started leaking.
