Customer reviews for 1/2 in. NOM Comp Inlet x 3/8 in. OD Comp Outlet LL Brass 1/4-Turn Angle Valve

1/2 in. NOM Comp Inlet x 3/8 in. OD Comp Outlet LL Brass 1/4-Turn Angle Valve

BrassCraft 1/2 in. Nom Comp Inlet x 3/8 in. OD Comp Outlet 1/4-Turn Angle Valve controls water flow to household plumbing fixtures. The angle valve is most often used where the water pipe enters the room from the floor. With a quarter turn of the valve handle, you are able to stop the flow of water leading to the plumbing fixture, allowing for maintenance and repair without turning off water to the entire home.

This valve knob is small so it'll fit easier in tight spaces. Solid metal construction. 1/4 turn is much better than constant twisting of typical handles. Plenty of youtube videos showing simple installation just turn off the water main and drain from lower faucet before disconnecting existing valve.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, No Leaks

This is a very good product. It's "Made in the U.S.A" and the quality shows. It's much better than the multi one and costs only $1 more.
You only can find it at HD. Lowes doesn't carry this one.

This all-metal valve is a great improvement over the plastic valve it replaced. I'm slowly replacing all my old shutoff with this valve. The only thing worth noting is that the operation is pretty stiff so you need to apply more force to turn the knob than you might expect.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, No Leaks
Cons: knob is hard to turn

I replaced a plastic shut off valve for my sink hot water side that had stuck over the years. This appears to be much better product. Easy to turn, no plastic feel about it. I hope it doesn't kink up like the previous plasticky type. All new houses should have this one installed on the hot water side.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install

Worlds better than the continuous turn unit that it replaced. The small profile of the turn lever is great underneath a cramped vanity as well. The previous owners had actually cut out a space for the larger continuous turn. My only con is that the interior appears to be plastic so we'll see how that holds up, but for the time being, it's doing its job perfectly, easily and with no leaks.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, No Leaks

While redoing a bathroom, I ran across a hopelessly frozen valve on a toilet. This unit easily replaced the bad unit after the copper was cut, just short of the old fitting. (Note: Be sure there is enough of a stub before cutting it off! The old ferrule and nut might be OK, in a pinch, but a clean, fresh connection is always preferable.) Once the copper was cleaned up with steel wool, this easily installed. The operation of the valve is really great, with 1/4 turn to open or close it. What a difference from the old style!
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks, easy smooth operation

This contraption is truly remarkable. I had a 1/2" copper pipe extruding from the wall which, when the main water was turned on, water would flood the room non-stop. I tried towels, buckets, plastic, even duct tape, and nothing would work. I was advised by the Home Depot worker wearing a hat, I don't remember which hat, who explained how this device fits, and, with just a 1/4 turn in the direction etched on the knob, water would stop flowing. Fascinating.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks
Cons: why can't this 'computer' do the same thing?

This took less than 2 minutes to install. Prep your pipe then finger tighten the connection. Tighten 1/2 turn with the wrench. Done and no drips. The 1/4 turn action is much easier that than the old fashion multi-turn valves. Will only install 1/4 turn valves from now on.

Only issue is knowing when you have it tight enough vs too tight with the compression rings to avoid a leak or drip. (But likely not unique to just this model.)

This valve is a great replacement for the cheap multi-turn "builder" valves that are installed on most new builds. They actually turn the water completely off unlike the the cheap multi-turn new build valves.

Whenever we renovate a bathroom or kitchen in my house (built 1965) or my sons' houses (early 1970s) , we replace the old shut-off (gate) valves with these compression-fitting, quarter-turn valves. To date I've installed more than a dozen and have never had a problem either installing or leaking. A very simple, reliable valve that doesn't leak like gate valves and should last 20 years or more. Easy for a DIYer to install and good value for the $.

Not having done much plumbing work--but otherwise quite handy. I was not aware how the valve connected to the pipe coming out of the wall. I was not familiar with the compression sleeve connection methodology.
Luckily, I did not wrench (counter clockwise) on the old connector so hard as to break the pipe loose before trying the non-intuitive clockwise direction successfully.
Valve seems quite sturdy and reliable.
Pros: Easy to Install, Reliable, No Leaks
