BrassCraft FIP Inlet x O.D. Compression Outlet 1/4-Turn Angle Valve controls the water flow to household plumbing fixtures - faucets, toilets, dishwashers, icemakers, washing machines, etc. The angle valve is most often used where the water pipe enters the room from the wall. With a 90 Deg. 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 shutting off the water to the entire home. One-piece shut-off mechanism ensures smooth operation without freeze-ups, even after long periods without use. Easy-to-remove handle protects against accidental operation during rough-ins. Compatible with iron pipe, no-lead certified.
