Hello, everyone, I'm Joshua Clement, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to disconnect a quick connect bathroom faucet water line. For this job you won't really need any tools, you'll just be using your hands and a little bit of pressure. Here we have a quick connect, and located on each side are these little plastic washers. If you notice there's a little gap in between the plastic washer and the brass. To disassemble this, what you'll do is you'll push in on this plastic, and pull out on your pipe. Sometimes you have to give it a little twist, but what you're doing is you're deactivating the teeth that are in that quick connect coupling, and deactivating them from grabbing onto the pipe. So there's our CPVC pipe, and does the same thing to the copper pipe. You just squeeze it in, and pull out. As you can see a little bit better on the copper pipe where the teeth marks have grabbed onto it, that's to hold it in under high pressure. So when you pull that plastic in, you're relieving the teeth from the pipe so you can slide it out. You can also reuse the copper coupling in other areas. So it's not ruined after you disassemble it. Quick connect couplings are very easy to disassemble, that way if you have to get in there and do a repair, you aren't ruining cutting into the pipe, stuff like that, you can get in there, disassemble it, and use it somewhere else, or just put it back together after you fix your pipe. Thank you all for watching, and good luck with this project.
