Forum Title: PRV Install, but no give in pipes
Hi folks. I am trying to install a pressure reducing valve on 3/4 copper pipe. Problem is, there is no wiggle room, not even the 1" to get a shark bite connector attached. I recently had to install a joint in 4" PVC with no wiggle room. The solution was a rubber coupling on the outside. Now I face the same problem but with copper! After i cut the pipe, i cant move either way. I can't move the peither way. I'm trying to install just above where the water line enters the house and I have the ceiling on the other side. In case it matters, I don't do sweat joints, sorry. Any help would be much appreciated. Oh yeah, is it a bad idea to thread the shark bite after attaching it to the other end? Someone said you could cut the pipe and end up with a leak. Mike

Working with copper and don't do sweat joints? Learn, or hire somebody. Leave the shark bite fittings alone.
