Removing compression ring?


Rarely --but often enough to note: Not all shutoff valves have the same depth socket for the pipe--

Some times the ferrel is to far back (leavibg the copper to long) to fit into a Brass Craft shut off.

Three solutions---Get a shut off with a deeper throat-(Lowe's shut offs are deeper I think)
Cut off 1/8 of an inch of copper (I have a tiny 'Imp' cutter that will do that)
Cut the pipe behind the ferrel and use a new one.
