1st picture we have the old plastic trailer T/S valve.
2nd pic is of the back side of the valve from an access hole that was cut by the previous plumber when he repiped the place from polybutylene to cpvc. Since he brought his risers up at a totally retarded angle I'll have to make some swing joints on the supplys to get'r plumb.
3rd pic. sweating up the valve. I keep all 4 versions of the valve stocked on the truck so that no matter what supply piping I'm dealing with I have a valve with connections configured to make my life easier.
4th and 5th pics. I cut 2 cross braces and pounded a flat spot in them. Then soldered to my tub/shower riser. Love that power cutter :thumbsup:.
Hope some handyman doesn't try to jerk the cartridge out of the valve when it sticks...you lnow how dem moens do.:laughing: I bet that cpvc would snap like toothpicks. Good job and good payday.......you really cant dictate what materials are used in your area unless your doin new work,you just hafta work with whats out there doing repair work.
