This house is 50+ years old, but seriously – no shut-off valves on the sink and the bathtub?! There is no break time during demo if you need to turn off all water to remove the bathroom vanity and take apart the bathtub.
Enter the Sharkbite®! An awesome, little shut-off valve that can be installed quickly and easily by handy homeowners. Cut the pipe and snap on the Sharkbite®. Deburring the pipe is key! Yes, it took me three attempts to get the sink pipe to stop leaking.
Different Sharkbites® for different applications. Above is the sink. Below is the bathtub/shower.
