How to Install a Stop and Waste Valve

December 27, 2010 at 12:08 pm | Category: Bathroom Remodeling

Step 1: Cut the Pipe
The first step is to cut out a section of the cold water line to insert the mixing valve. Cut out a small section of both the cold and the hot water lines using a pipe cutter (Image 1).

Note: have a bucket ready to collect any water that is left in the pipes

Step 2: Install the T Fitting
Install the T fitting on the hot water pipe.

Use the torch and flux to solder it onto the existing hot water line.

Note: Take off the drain before soldering so the heat doesn’t melt the rubber gasket. After soldering, replace the drain.

Step 3: Attach the Stop and Waste Valves
Use the same soldering technique to attach the stop and waste valves onto the hot and cold supply lines.

Note: Make sure the arrow on the valve points in the direction the water flows.

Now you can turn on the main water supply again.
