I cross threaded my elbow pvc piece today, then I had to go to Home Depot again to purchase a metal elbow. I needed to add an elbow to allow the weep solenoid to stop all the water.
I can not figure out why this solenoid does not work. It looks like the spring is messed up. But why is there another spring in the solenoid base (last picture). I just replaced the solenoid with a new spare one.
Also when I was trying to repair the weep solenoid I messed up these crappy brass fittings. I love when fixing one problem causes other problems.

It has another spring in the base because it’s a normally open solenoid. The coil pushes it closed rather than pulling it open.
