A: I don’t know of anyone using this valve for shutoff on bathtub waterlines. I suppose you may, but I wouldn’t.
A: Hello Plumbedout-This is a great question. The slip joint connection does not have a hard connection like that found with a compression, it is made for earthquake prone zones so the slip joint is designed to seal with a combination of a slip nut and a slip joint washer, to allow the ridged supply line to slightly move if there is an earthquake. There are two options for earthquake zones, one is a ridged supply line with a slip joint stop or use a compression outlet stop with a braided flexible connector. If you need additional support, please contact one of our Customer Service Representatives at 877-272-7755.
A: Yes. They come with standard 1/2" pipe threads OR 1/2" compression fitting for bare copper pipe. If it has a nut and brass ferrule on the inlet, then it is meant to be fitted on bare copper pipe. The pipe threaded ones have female threads for screwing onto steel pipe or a threaded brass or copper fitting.
A: Thank you Craig for the question. The threads on the inlet of this valve (FIP) are tapered. Should you have additional questions regarding this product please do not hesitate to contact one of our product experts toll-free at 877-272-7755.
A: Yes just use teflon tape apply 3-4 turns clockwise the galvanized pipe and screw on the valve
