Using compression fittings vs soldering
I have a 9 ft. run of copper water line feeding my dishwasher from the sink supply. Line was originally soldered (30 yrs ago.) past the shutoff valve but I need to remove the line to remove the kitchen cabinets, then reinstall it once the new cabinets are in. If I cut the copper 4-6 inches past the shutoff and install compression fittings to reconnect it, are the odds in my favor of having a solid connection using compression fittings? I had success at the dishwasher end when I recently installed a compression fitting for the stainless flex supply line and would hope that this would work too. Other than the possibility of operator-error, is this a good plan?
