|In response to Re: Push/pull supply shut�off valve UPDATE|
: Finally got the mgf of these stop valves:
: My new home builder in Florida want to use push / pull "FlowTite�- The only stop valve that is code approved
: All plumbers I have talked to shake their heads 'no' but the builder's plumber sub thinks these are great.
: The builder does like to use new technology and uses double pane windows with Low-E coating between the panes, uses Icenene sprayin foam in the attic, etc so maybe these are ok??
: Any comments from users?
: : Thanks hj - guess I should be more clear - do these thing work as shutoffs? When I tried one in the model home, I couldn't get any of them to push in to shut off the water. I hear Flo-rite makes some like this.
: : Robert
: : : They are, and since they push onto the CPVC tubing, they are very difficult to remove when they have to be replaced.
: : : : My new home builder is planing to use a plastic? push/pull
