Compression is common because no sweating. Threaded is common as well.
its called 5/8 compression x 3/8 compression angle valve..handle may say brasscraft....ben srfor my toilet I have copper pipe coming out of the wall and it has a large nut looking thing, then the valve is threaded onto the nut.. can't tell for sure as there is teflon tape on all the connections including the 3/8" comp hose!
I thought usually 1/2" pipe with compression fitting? Or does a sweat on pipe thread nut is common also?
I will have a picture soon.
Teflon tape? No such thing.jagans said:There should not be Teflon tape on either nut
yep get a 5/8 od x 3/8 od compression angle stop....use exist nut and ferrell..ben srI should be able to buy a 5/8" OD valve and try to reuse the ferrule and nut on there first right?
If that does not hold then I will cut the pipe?
