    Re: cross over

    in a multi unit building (2 or more units) every fixture has to have a shut off. very few multi story buildings have individual services to each unit.

    angle stops count as a shut off. tubs and showers require an integral stop.

    the only fixture that seems to sneak by is a laundry hose bibb. they tend to look at it as a stop. but truthfully the hose bibb will need new packing or replacement.

    as far as being able to shut the valve down the road. i find that if nobody has messed up the screwdriver stop with a bad fitting screwdriver. i can usually get them to turn and shut off. honestly i have more issues with angle stops shutting off than a screwdriver stop.

      I don't generally use them unless it's a multi-family building. I'm always surprised when I do use them and they actually work!
      sigpic3:00, I mean 5:00, and work is done. Time to crack a cold one.

        Does it have to be an integral stop by code are can you still put in ball valves if there is an access panel ?

          I couldnt see an inspector shooting you down for a ball valve instead of an integral stop. So I will guess and say that would be acceptable. Good Q.
