Question to the manufacturer: website says these are lead free but label says it may expose you to lead, which is it?

Asked by LeadFreePLEASE October 7, 2020

Answers

This valve is lead free but you may be exposed to lead when you remove the old valve (lead solder used to install most old fittings) in order to replace it with your new valve. Also some (very old) plumbing pipes were lead not copper.

how far away from the wall do copper pipes need to be to use ball valve?

Asked by gogo September 28, 2020

It depends on how you place the valve on the line. Once installed it will rotate on the line. Just make sure prior to installation that it rotates the correct way.

Great fittings. This particular slip Ball Valve was used to replace a gate valve and pipe union that was in line on a 3/4" cold water supply - a connecting nipple was significantly corroded and was dripping. Needed to add a short section of copper tubing to span the total distance of the removed parts (used a 3/4" X 3/4" MPT SharkBite to connect this extension). It took more time to remove the the old fittings than to install the new. These fittings made the task very easy.
