    Hello,
    I am a handy guy who has done quite a bit of "amateur" plumbing and repairs.
    I am replacing the dishwasher in our 9year old home and the shut-offs are those nasty Accor plastic push-pull valves with the supply hose attached. The feeds are cpvc and I would like to replace the one for the dishwasher (and eventually all) with Sharkbite angle valves and metal braid supply lines. I do not want to score the cpvc by turning and yanking. I think I might be able to remove the Accor valve by using a rotating tubing cutter in the smooth section and then use end-cutters on the internal pieces. Does anyone have another method that you can share? Thanks for your advice.

    If you have that much tubing sticking out of the wall, just cut it off with a mini hacksaw or hacksaw blade.
