Thread: ugh! Grohe valve is threaded!

  1. #1

    Default ugh! Grohe valve is threaded!

    I did all this searching and came up with some nice fixtures to install in my shower and the pricey Grohe valve is female threaded!

    I really prefer the ease of the sweat joint.

    How should I handle the threaded valve?

    TFE, tape.. ?

    Could I flux it and go metal to metal with a threaded nipple and solder the threads?

    Thanks,

    Doug

    I usually flux the threads and solder the adapters in to eliminate any possible leaks.

    Male adapters will work fine on grohe. On some of the other European valves I solder the adapter to the valve if the threads arn't tapered and the adapter will bottom out
