|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.
We have used threaded fittings for a long long time very successfully. Installed properly they will give you years of service. Plus the chrome nipples and decorative stops will look great on your pedestal sink.
