De-soldering main water line

Well, I took the path of least resistance. This just seemed like the thing to do. Plus it's easily accessible if it ever fails (save what ever damage that might occur). I moved the ground clamp up farther on the line, but wasn't sure of the conductivity of the shark bite fittings, so I stopped just before they came into play.

Thanks everyone for their advice.
