George Baker who has a business in Santa Monica, California, called me to replace a stop valve and sink line underneath his business sink. He sold some of the best cookies made on earth.
This post shows the eight steps on how to remove and replace a stop valve and a fill line in an extremely tight area.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the stop valve in on a galvanized pipe with a brass nipple on the end to accommodate the stop valve. These galvanized pipes are over 20-year old and can be very brittle and very difficult to change. If you are not sure get a plumbing service to do this job.
