We're installing a small corner shower in one of our washrooms, and I'm having an issue with the threaded inlet/outlet connections on the faucet.
I'm using Sharkbite, and bought some threaded-on-one-side/Sharkbite-on-the-other straight connectors for attaching everything to the faucet. The problem is I can only get them to thread about 2/3 of the way into any of the four spots on the faucet. I've tried with a wrench and they just refuse to go any farther than that.
The faucet set is Glacier Bay, which I've since found out is a pretty crap brand, so maybe that's the problem. Alternatively, maybe the threads on the Sharkbite connectors are too big, but I have a hard time believing that.
Is it a problem if the connectors don't go 100% of the way in?
I should point out, that for at least a few weeks, the wall behind the shower will be wide open, so I could try just threading the connectors as far as they'll go and keep a close eye on the situation.
