Intake Through hull for Marine Head
This Spring we noticed that over the winter water in our marine head had frozen, cracking the back of the fixture. When I went to replace the broken head, I found that, even with the seacock closed, water continued to flow from the intake line, indicating that the seacock was not functioning right. It wasn't closing off fully.
Question: Do I need to replace the seacock or is this just the result of lack of maintenance. Can they just be cleaned or something? The seacock is bronze, I think - I guess it could be brass. I'm kind of learning maintenance as I go...is this kind of thing common?
