In response to Re: shut off valves
: : I'm working on replacing shut off valves (aka angle stops) on my pedastal sink in the bathroom. A couple of sources (one a book and one a magazine article) say the way to do that is with compression nuts. Is that better than sweating the angle stop on? Will compression hold up over time? TIA.

: If the compression fitting is installed correctly, it will last forever. Since stops need to be replaced, I think it is folly to solder them.

Deb,
What do you think about using the screw on stops with 1/2" chrome nipples? (I found these decorative stops for my pedestal sinks)
