Street Elbow and brass shower valve
Posted by Jon on December 13, 2003 at 19:16:42:
Hi,

Is it OK to sweat a copper street elbow directly into a brass valve (for a shower) or is it better to sweat a short lenght of pipe into the valve and then sweat an elbow onto the pipe. The first option is obviously easier, I also worry about trying to sweat to joints that are going to be so close together (is there a recommended minimum distance between sweat joints?).

Thanks,
Jon
