WTH is this?
« on: May 23, 2017, 09:56:57 PM »

I had a dishwasher job today and I noticed the fill line leaking a little. I figured I would replace it. But, I can't because it's literally attached and can't be removed from the push-pull style valve under the sink. I called my plumber friend and he said he replaces a lot of them. Who thinks this is a good idea?
