Came home to a wet floor...where to start?
I put my sock firmly in the puddle in the kitchen, tracked it to a spewing stream of water coming from the valve of the small floorboard radiator in the kitchen, and went downstairs to shut the water off.
My basement is soaked in many places, but i soon determined that it's all a result of the leak in the kitchen. so i turned off the water just for that radiator and turned my water back on.
it's a gorton no D angle valve, and I've never looked at it closely, but it looks as if something's missing. surely the relief hole wasnt that big, was it?
i dont know if i should just clean up and replace the valve, or if it's a symptom of something worse.
its 50 degrees today in chicago. i expected something to go wrong on a much colder day.
should I dig deeper than the valve or am I overthinking it?
