yes the cold water connection. again, I have new water line on and tightened up without a leak but you can tell it is connected at an angle.
Just concerned about it leaking Thanks

well if its not leaking then it should be fine , I would keep an eye on it however, now and then check it. if it starts leaking you will need to replace the valve to fix it. heres a link in case. Water valve its around $45.00 , I hope this helps, Please remember to rate my service 3 or above before you sign off, If you need more info, please ask me - I'll be happy to reply.
