Forum Title: Shutoff valve help
I have these old shut offs in my main bathroom. Wondering how I remove them, and then the best way to prepare for new ones. I am unable to pull any pipe out of the wall in order to cut. Any advice appreciated. Thank you. Also - sorry, but I am posting this twice as the first time contained a link to the image on my google drive which I figured didn't work.

you need to cut , with tin snips that chrome escutcheon so you can hold on to the pipe the valve unscrews, use 2 wrenchs. one to hold the pipe from turning or twisting the other to remove the valve after you turn off the water

The image worked, but we prefer the way this pic is downloaded. No posts will show up for new members without manually being allowed in here, as a safeguard from all the recent spammers we have experienced.

That is a threaded valve it unscrews. Can't tell from picture if it's 3/8 or 1/2.
