I don't deal with many 2" valves so when I run into one it usually requires a supply house trip. This valve was repaire a year ago and the customer could not get the previous company out and got my name from a neighbor. It was leaking between the MA and valve. Did not notice an apparent crack. Could not get the MA out with two large pipe wrenches so I think they glued it in. When I bought a new 2" MA the threads seemed shorter than I remembered. After screwing it in I noticed the MA threads don't make it all the way to the bottom of the valve threads. In retrospect I wish I had used sch 80 TOE. On another note is a supply house gripe. Went to a company I have used for years that has moved to a new location the locals will know as Tarna. Five contractors waiting for service. One guy at the counter who was lousy at his job. Waited one minute walked out drove 5 miles to JDL on Willowbrook was in and out in 5 minutes. I'm as loyal as anybody on earth can possibly be to local Texas owned companies but their are limits. These pics are of the 2"valve I cut out and where it was leaking from.
