About Push Angle Stop Valves

Push angle stop valves, also known as push-fit angle stop valves or push-to-connect angle stop valves, are plumbing valves that provide a convenient and easy way to connect water supply lines to fixtures such as faucets, toilets, or appliances. They utilize a push-fit or push-to-connect mechanism, eliminating the need for soldering or threaded connections.

Here are some key features and information about push angle stop valves:

  1. Design: Push angle stop valves are typically made of brass or other durable materials and consist of a valve body, a handle or lever for opening and closing the valve, and a push-fit connection on one end. The push-fit connection is designed to securely attach to the corresponding size and type of supply line without the need for additional tools or fittings.

  2. Push-Fit Connection: The push-fit connection on a push angle stop valve uses an O-ring or seal and a series of internal gripping teeth or collets to create a watertight and secure connection with the supply line. To connect the valve, simply push the supply line into the valve until it clicks or locks into place. The connection is secure and can withstand typical water pressures.

  3. Installation: Installing a push angle stop valve is straightforward and doesn't require soldering, threading, or special tools. It is important to ensure that the end of the supply line is clean and free from any debris before making the connection. Push the supply line firmly into the valve until it is fully seated and locked in place. The valve can then be mounted onto the plumbing pipe or wall.

  4. Usage: They are commonly used in residential and commercial plumbing applications where a quick and reliable connection is desired. They are particularly useful in situations where access or space is limited, and traditional soldering or threaded connections are impractical or time-consuming.

  5. Compatibility: These valves are compatible with various types of supply lines, including copper, PEX (cross-linked polyethylene), CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride), and polybutylene. They are available in different sizes to match the specific supply line diameter and the fixture or appliance being connected.

  6. Benefits: Push angle stop valves offer several advantages, including ease of installation, time savings, and the ability to make adjustments or repairs without the need for special tools or expertise. They also allow for disconnection and reconnection if necessary, making them convenient for future maintenance or upgrades.
