Jerry Hotel Furniture Ltd says:

It is such a good video, very professional plumbing technique

John andrews says:

Great videos. Huge fan! Background music is a bit distracting.

Darrin's coils&clouds says:

I cringe every time he says no need to hire a licensed plumber.

valmdziagwa says:

Hey Jeff,
Just curious why do don’t use PEX for the connection between the valve and the tub faucet?

Mani Banda says:

Thank you very much it is very educative

Ivan Smithson says:

I love your videos. I learn right now for this job.

Robert Davis says:

i never seen anyone wipe flux after the fitting was complete. whats the reasoning behind that. are u aways solo for these jobs?

pastel dreams says:

Is this from Canadia? I'm sensing a Canadian dialect, and a nervous Canadian bounce when talking.

DisplayName01 says:

How do you know which pipe is hot and cold?

DisplayName01 says:

What is the additional flux for? Or was that water you brushed on after? Thanks

neil 1234567 says:

I was with ya all the way until ya started using those awful shark bite fittings. Never bury them in a wall unless you want to pay for the next remodel of your customer house. If they don't leak right away it's only a matter of time before they come back to haunt you..

Michał Gellert says:

lovin' it! thanks for the video.

Jorge Viveros says:

Nice video, thanks

Dave Kirkpatrick says:

Great info, but several times you do something, or use something, without mentioning specifics – for instance, @25:46 you add what looks like paste (???) into the copper pipe opening. What is the substance, and why use it?

John Picaro Jr. says:

Question: The Depth! Is it different with all shower faucet brands? Do you have to compensate for the cement board and tile thickness? Thanks in advance.

Roy Saxton says:

great vid about plumbing options. Only thing that I've noticed is that the pinch clamps on pex tend to leak when exposed to extreme temp variations. saw a vid when the wall was opened up in a commercial bath the pinch clamps were all leaking the few crimp clamps had not. I do use the pinch clamps on rubber apps such as in automotive vacuum. Good to see someone who can solder. I like the map gas too….

Miss Chocolate says:

Thanks, Jeff, you are an excellent teacher, because you make the soldering look easy (not scary).
Can I change my old Delta Monitor shower valve without changing the tub-faucet since it already corresponds with a separate drain stopper? Or should I get the complete universal kit and change out everything?

Joanne Thanner says:

Don’t stop making videos. I’m watching all of them.

omar monzon says:

excelent demostration you helped me to improve my skills. thanks

Diana Traz says:

Great videos. Very clear & easy to follow. Question: What are the long capped copper extensions on the old rough in? I see you left them here, but other places I have seen them removed and the pex goes straight to the supply line and those extensions are removed. I have them on my tub/shower & didn't know if I should leave them or remove them. Thank you.

MyKonaRC says:

I don't know why people like the crimp on pex instead of the compression pex rings you expand

jose vilca says:

very well explanation, thanks. jose vilca
