Now which valve did you check and why would the head stop leaking after the water was shut off.

Sometimes water sea page is not caused by a seeping valve.

Be careful...it may cause a wet spot. Doesn't mean you need a valve replaced yet.

I'm sure that another thread will be required to address where Stillwaters check valve needs to be located.
