Steel Valve glued to PVC pipe - how to get apart?
I don't know why, but my homebuilder glued the PCV pipe (incoming water) to the metal/steel(?) shut-off valve for my toilet.
Now I need to change the shut off valve and can't just unscrew it. The only way I can think to get the old valve off the pvc pipe is to saw it off?
However it is almost at floor level. So it seems like I would have to saw off the valve and then glue on an adapter or another piece of PCv pipe to extend it up above floor level enough to put on the new valve..
Is there another way? Is there some kind of liquid pvc glue remover that would allow me to remove the valve without cutting the pvc piping??
or some other way??
Thanks for any suggestions.
