I'd like to replace the faucet (and add shut off valves below) but am unfamiliar with current piping beneath. I've done basic plumbing (valve to copper pipe via compression hookup) but these pipes don't look copper.
- what are these bends (can I connect water supply line without removing the joint?)
- are the pipes copper (coated with something) and/or are they compatible with copper fitting (can I replace the joint with quarter turn valve?)
The skinny pipe 3/8" the pipe from the wall is 5/8"
