Hey all. Thanks ahead of time for the help!
I am trying to install a new shower valve and have had my difficulties.
With each difficulty I have learned much, and now feel capable of doing the job. ( yea..right.)
This was a new Moen shower valve a week agao. I have sweated and unsweated pipes a couple times.
Now, that i am preparing to do it one final time (see "yea right" above).
I have a couple questions...
1. How well do i have to clean this valve?
2. Can I have a corner so close to the valve? If so, do I sweat it on one step or two? Would I be better off putting an elbow in lower and allowing my self more room by the valve?
