In response to Re: Mixing Valve
: I am remodeling our bathroom and am at the point of installing the shower mixing valve. My question involves connecting the hot and cold water. The folks at the local plumbing shop set me up with all the necessary pieces cast iron pieces (1/2 pipe) to make everything 'fit'. My concern is that in the directions for the valve it mentions not to solder closer than 4 inches from the valve becasue there are plastic filters. The distance from where I would need to solder is 4 1/2 inches away. Do I take my chances? Is that enough space to not melt the filters? Or is there any other options I should consider. Thanks for your help. MIKE; Wrap a wet cloth around the valve, and don't waste any time in soldering.
