Asked by shoppits March 25, 2021

Answer

If the original line ends in a 3/8” male compression fitting this will cap that off. While shutting off the valve is a good idea it can fail and adding a cap for extra protection is always a good idea.

What do you do when the line to be capped seems to be between a 1/4 and a 3/8

There are also 5/16" compression fittings, they aren't as common and you may have trouble finding one locally. Just do a search for it.

Can the threaded cap be used to cap off the mixing valve outlet (tub spout)?

Asked by James July 27, 2020

Answer

This cap is made to fit male compression fittings. Most shower valves use pipe thread so https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-2-in-OD-Compression-Brass-Cap-Fitting-801139/207176598 may be the appropriate cap. Pleas consult the manual for the shower valve or the manufacturer to verify that the tub outlet is 1/2” male NPT thread.

For this cap you need a Size 0 faucet washer which is 17/32" Danco Part 35063B or Home Depot Store SKU #828731. Fits snugly inside the cap. Rule of thumb is to hand tighten and then add one full turn with the wrench.

For capping a 3/8” compression valve
The cap Everbilt 613 289 LFA-105 in combination with a Danco 88569 1/2” OD flat washer seals the valve without a drip. During my renovation, worked like a champ. Bought (3) caps for the toilet and sink with a pack of washers. Valves were frozen and I shut the main off and capped the valves then turned the main back on. Worked without any drip. Thanks for those who recommended a washer.
