I need to remove and replace a Honeywell 2 port valve. The problem is it is fitted into the copper pipe run by compression fittings.
How do I remove the valve please?

Obviously drain the water enough to not have any in the pipe work it is fixed to, then undo the compression nuts, pull them up the pipe then pull the pipes out from the compression body.

Sometimes you have to undo a further connection if there is no room for movement in the pipe work, but hopefully you can get an inch or so movement to enable the pipe to be pulled back enough.

To fit new one reverse the instructions.

I always put jointing compound around the olives before assembling.

If you replace with another Honeywell valve you shouldn’t have to remove the old olives and nuts.

Many thanks, Dave. The problem is the valve is in a pipe run with little or no wiggle room. How do I get yhe pipe out of yhe compression joints if there is no leeway?

If you are absolutely certain that there are no other connections in the pipe run, or there is no give or spring in the pipe run to enable you to remove the valve, then you could consider the following option.

Cut the pipe, fit new valve, replace the cut pipe with existing nut and olive, and fit one of these.

Hopefully Dave will approve.

Not bad PLB but judging by the OPs skill level I'd go for something like this :wink:

Thanks Razor.

I have never seen a slip compression coupling!

If I need one I usually just file the stop out of a standard one :thumbright:

Try changing just the motor first. Much more common for them to fail than the actaul valve.

No drain down required!
