I need to install the R2707 from the side of the deck which makes soldering the connections after everything is installed next to impossible. Is it possible to solder all the connections (including 1/2" male adapters for braided supply lines) outside of the deck and then install the entire assembly following the finished deck instructions? Of course connecting the braided supply lines would be the last step.
Thank you for your question. The connections could be soldered before installing the valve into the tub, as long as the end valves are the correct distance apart, level, and oriented correctly. You would then remove the top washers, slide the entire assembly up through the deck, reattach the top washer, and tighten the jack screws.
