|In response to Re: RE: Shower Valve Install Q. Help.......|
: 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!
I hang the valve from the shower head adapter first. Makeing sure, it will be secure and at the proper depth for the finish trim.
