- If you loosen the compression nut that goes into your water solenoid valve and no water comes out then there is a good possibility that you need a new saddle valve. The saddle valve has become stopped up with lime deposits or debris.
- Please make sure your main water supply is turned off in your home, and the pressure is relieved from the pipes by opening a faucet or two before you attempt to remove the saddle valve. You will get an unexpected shower and a mess if you don’t turn off the main water supply and relieve the pressure. It is a good idea to have a bucket and some towels available before removing the valve.

- I especially like it because it is already screwed into the base and ready to go! No pipe dope needed to keep it from leaking!

- Answer: Yes, you can use the STV2 Supco Self Tapping Water Saddle Valve to replace an old saddle valve. Please make sure the water is turned off and water pressure is released.
