In response to Re: shut off valves
: 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.

If the compression fitting is installed correctly, it will last forever. Since stops need to be replaced, I think it is folly to solder them.
