    It's connected to the stop.

    If you need a new hose, replace the shutoff.

    hi terry

    thanks for the quick reply...so do you mean that if i need to put in another faucet line, i need to remove the whole shutoff valve + faucet line assembly?

    is it not possible to just screw off the faucet line?

    thanks

    It's a crimped on fitting.

    Good luck trying to remove that little bugger.

    The back side of the shutoff is a push-on.
    Your have to either destroy the shutoff to replace, or cut the pipe behind it.

    And luckily you have a nice length of pipe to work with as well. If it was flush with the wall then it would be sharkbite time. lol Hey it's a DIY forum, right┐
    I just post cuz I like to see my avatar.
