I've installed a handheld bidet in one of the toilets but the space between the water outlet and the adapter's inlet is too little, like 3-4 inches. Is this too much stress on the pipe? I'm afraid it might fail eventually. Appreciate the feedback. I've attached the picture.

That looks like too much to me. The trick here is to buy a longer supply and install it with a circular loop.

With flex connectors, I like the valve to not output directly at the faucet. So the curves are more gentle.

Pointing right at the toilet is ideal for chrome-plated-brass tubing. That is the ultimate fear eliminator. I have never done it, but I learned how it would work. I wrote this up: https://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?resources/non-flex-copper-supply-riser.23/ Maybe I will try it someday.

Does your stop valve work well?

Yeah, the stop valve is working well. I will try putting a longer supply line in circular loop.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
