How to Fit an Isolation Valve on Copper Water Pipe

Isolation valves are a wonderful thing and Roger loves fitting them wherever he can. You might recognise this boiler room, it’s the fourth episode we’ve shot in here. This job takes a while so you’ll also get a bit of Roger’s insight, some gripes, plumbing history and general musings from a man that has much to share with the audience that he loves.

Isolation valves or service valves are a life and time saver. We’ll show you how to fit an isolation valve to copper water pipes so that your appliances can be disconnected from the main water supply quickly and easily.

We prefer an isolating valve with a handle and the one used in our video is an Intaball Lever Ball Valve with red handle from Altecnic Plumbing and Heating Supplies.
