|In response to Re: shut off valves|
Sweat angle stops? Start looking around at people's angle stops. You'll see that 9 out of 10 times compression stops have been used if the house was plumbed w/ copper. In other words compression is the way to go. Angle stops, (aka shut off valves) would be the correct way to say it.
: I'm working on replacing shut off valves (aka angle stops) on my pedastal sink in the bathroom. A couple of sources (one a book and one a magazine article) say the way to do that is with compression nuts. Is that better than sweating the angle stop on? Will compression hold up over time? TIA.
