In my haste to get my soft water system installed, I plumbed the PRV a little too close to the garage wall. Its a Watts 45BU model with NPT female inlet & NPT threaded union outlet.
I need to replace the valve but of course there is not enough room to rotate the valve off the copper male inlet, unless I cut a relief into the wall paneling and drywall (which I'd rather avoid). 2 options that I see:
1. Repair the PRV with valve repair kit.
2. Hacksaw the PRV near the female inlet, install a double union PRV.
What think ye experts?
