New kitchen counters are coming in soon and I need to prepare the sink plumbing. I think I can do a half-decent sweating job and I have the right tools. Plan is to un-sweat the existing tees and to put on Sharkbite caps until the new counter is in. Then sweat on new tees with new quarter turn valves, extension pipes for the hot and cold and the valves for those.
Is this a solid plan?
Also, I cannot quite make out what comes after the tee on hot. Is this a 1/2” threaded adapter that is sweated on the tee?
And finally, in which order would you do this? Should I make the top assemblies first and sweat them on supply popes as a last step?
