|In response to Re: shut off valve|
The reason a LICENSED plumber is used for good work is because of the experience they bring to your job. Gate valves and ball valves both have heat sensitivity to the temperature that it takes to sweat copper leak tight joints. Trades people who are sensitive to the amount of hets an inexperienced fitter will apply to the joint sometimes use what is called a heat sink. The heat sink connects on the valve and wicks away the heat from the valve body while allowing adequate temperature for the good sweat joint. Contact a LICENSED plumber for good fitting non leak valves.
