    Can you post a picture inside and out so we can see what your seeing?The wood being dry is a

    Get rid of that old style valve and replace with a new Fluid Master valve.Any box store,

    Imposable to tell much from that one picture.I do see where for some reason that post was not
    sat under the support beam like it should be.There's no joist hangers.Is there a deck or patio
    where it's ...
