My water valve has all threaded fiittings on the lines. What do I have to do to convert the lines to use with the new style water valve for push in lines?
ANSWER Hello Bob,
All you need to do is cut the ends off of the water lines, (the lines must be cut off SQUARELY), to eliminate the part that has indentations from the other installation. The lines will slip into the new valve fittings and when they bottom, push harder until you feel them "pop" in about another 1/4 of an inch. When this occurs, pulling on the line a bit seats the seal.
