RE: Shower Valve Install Q. Help.......
Posted by Casman on March 18, 2002 at 10:11:22:
Hello, all. I'm finally to the point where I'm installing the shower valve (thingee). It has 4 female threaded openings, which I'm guessing the male threaded copper fittings screw into. I put pipe thread compound on the fittings and wrenched them into the shower valve. I plan on soldering 90 degree elbows into these fittings. Question? I guess I have to solder on these elbows but won't the heat melt or destroy the Pipe thread compound and cause leaks when I'm done? The install directions don't say anything about it!
