I am experienced in copper piping, but have to replace a sink shutoff which
connected to Flow Guard Gold cpvc ASTM NSF PW pipe stub with a standard
3/8" flexible steel compression sink fitting. I have used PVC for drain
pipes, but this is
cpvc with a transition shutoff and I have some questions please. I would
would attach it very much like standard pvc fittings.
Can I buy the cement and this transition shutoff at any Loews or Home Depot?
What type of cement to use?
Do I use primer?
What kind of shutoff should I look for?
How long does glue dry before turning on water pressure?
Is this type of shutoff hard to find?
I ask this because a friend told me a plumber did this repair for him which
difficult to do because this shutoff was very hard to find. The plumber had
use a copper transition and solder a standard copper shutoff to the
Thanks. Please email too if possible.
