Nestor its a helluva lot better than that Genova valve on the dish soap lubricated stub out bouncing off the kitchen cabinet door 5 minutes after he leaves on a weekend vacation. My God Nestor what kind of hack plumbing do you think I spend my days tearing out of homes when they get tired of having leaks and decide to do it right!

Option 1 was using another compression connection.
Option 2 was using a valve that has a CPVC insert that glues onto the stub out.

By my calculations he's got enough of a stub out that the 3rd generation of decedents who inherit the house will be facing the problem you are worrying about.

Well, it's not up to me to decide the gameplan the homeowner should follow. As long as he/she is fully aware of the benefits and consequences of each option open to them, then they can walk away from here with enough knowledge to form their own opinions, and we've done our job to get them to that point.

I see it as our responsibility to inform, not just advise.

Indeed. You've all given me a lot to think about. Much more than I thought I'd get. Thanks again for all the responses.

Or, you could fix it like a Well Driller/Pump Man would. A rubber hose and a couple of hose clamps. What's all the fuss about ?

You and me both, SpeedBump. Brilliant ideas always seem simple and obvious once someone else thinks of them.

I wonder if anyone submitted that idea to Popular Mechanics yet? They pay $100 for the "Tip of the Month" if they publish it?
