Good afternoon, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer; my name is ***** ***** I will help you today.Do you mean this valve? If so, then yes you'll have to cut the pipe and unwind the valve.Personally, I then would attempt to get access to the next steel connection downstream, unwind that, then make on one of the following adapters to each threaded end:https://www.wavin.com/en-gb/catalogue/Potable-Water/Plumbing-Systems/Push-fit-Hep2O/Hep2O-Brass-Adapter-22x34-SPTFThen I would use a valve with compression fittings, like the following:https://www.screwfix.com/p/pegler-ball-valve-blue-22mm/18343... and couple up from the outlet of the valve to the adapter downstream.What's the gauge of the steel pipework?_____If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.
If you can measure the pipework on each side of the valve then I can tell you the specific products to buy. I have assumed 1" steel pipework in the information above, but other sizes are available.Are you planning to do the work yourself? What is the original problem that you want to overcome?
OK I understand. What else can I do to help at this stage? :-)
