I want to install a laundry tub in my garage. I have two pipes (CPVC for cold and hot water) protruding from the wall. Also a drain pipe. All three are currently "capped".

I need to connect angle valves to each of the two water lines. Have looked at angle valves at Lowes but

can't figure out how to connect them to the CPVC pipes.

Possibly 1/2" cpvc in and 3/8" metal connection for flexible hose to faucet?

Any ideas out there?

The Lowes here have CPVC stop valves. You have to read the label. They look just like the other ones made with chrome plated brass.

But the inlets side has a female CPVC coupling build in. Attache with glue like another CPVC fitting.

The other way is to use a coupling with male iron pipe threads (MIPS or Male, IPS). And the use a stop valve with female threaded connection (FIPS).

Thanks Bill. Once given the solution, the answer seems obvious. But only once given the solution.
