Hi,

Can a novice easily convert a soft copper pipe line into a flex line? If so, any good websites to read more about this??

I think I understand the soddering part to get the old pipe off, but do I need to shut the WHOLE main water valve off, or can I just shut off the water valve at the point of connection?? This hot water valve eventually runs directly to the hot water heater and there are no other cut offs, but the one at the valve I want to change.

I am converting a pipe for our new dishwasher and the old soft copper piping has toooo many kinks for the new washer and will NOT bend anymore to get around the new motor. I was told Flex Line is the BEST to change over to.

Thoughts.
