I came accross these in plumbing cofiguration, mostly for showers
are integral stops just a shut off valve, or do they differ in some way from
normal shut off valve. are they a part of some other setup, or an
What would be the best way of taking care of shut off valves for a shower
My setup: ( 2nd floor bathroom)
3/4" from basement to upstairs, stubs for shower, from 3/4" continues 1/2"
to wc, and to bath + sink. There are main shut offs on the 3/4" branches at
I was going to put individual shut off valves on each fixture connection,
but the shower has me a little stumped. The only way i can have the valves
accessible is from other side of the wall (hallway) though access panel. I
could have a small opening (4"x4") with blank cover (would blend with
receptacles around the hallway) What would be the proper/standard/best way
of installing the valves?
The shower is a panel that will connect with 1/2" screw on tubing to the
stubs in wall, all mixing valves etc are part of the panel.
