Shower Valve Replacement With Shark Bites

Got no fire to solder a pipe?

Here is a home repair project where the shower valve needed to be replaced.  When I first started to take this valve apart I discovered that it was a solid housing.  Originally I thought it just had a cartridge and would be a quick fix.  I decided that the only way to get this faucet to stop dripping was to replace the entire valve.

Shark Bites work!  I have only ever seen one fail and it was my own fault.  I cut the pipe a little crooked and then forced the connection.  Here in this install there are 3 connections with two that are under constant pressure.
