What is an Angle Valve Cock Faucet?
An angle valve cock faucet, commonly known as an angle stop, is a type of valve used in plumbing systems. It is designed to stop water flow, allowing for maintenance or the replacement of fixtures downstream without shutting off the water supply to the entire building. The name 'angle valve' comes from its shape as the pipe changes direction at a 90-degree angle.
Do Angle Valve and Angle Faucet Mean the Same?
While the terms "angle valve" and "angle faucet" are sometimes used interchangeably, there can be slight differences. Both are types of valves that control the flow of water, but an angle faucet typically refers to the control mechanism of a faucet, often seen in bathrooms and kitchens. Angle valves, on the other hand, are more often used in the water supply lines to control water flow to these faucets or other fixtures.
Where can you Install an Angle Valve in Homes?
In homes, angle valves can be installed anywhere you need to control the water flow to a specific fixture without affecting the entire water supply. Common locations for installation include under the sink to control water flow to the faucet, at the toilet to control water to the fill valve, or at the washing machine hookup.
The Main Function of an Angle Cock Valve Faucet
The main function of an angle valve cock faucet is to provide a means to control water flow to a specific fixture. This is particularly useful in situations where maintenance or replacement of the fixture is required. With an angle valve, you can shut off the water supply to that fixture without disrupting the water supply to the rest of the home. This saves both water and the inconvenience of turning off the water at the main valve.
