Hi, remodeling a bathroom. I have hot a steam system. It was simple to disconnect the radiator, just one big nut. however I need to remove the big shut-off valve coming up from the floor to install a new subfloor and I cannot break the valve free from the nipple. I'm afraid I'm going to break something. I soaked the connection with WD-40 and let sit an hour, re-soaked and let sit etc. Any advice? I can always cut a U in the subfloor as I'm going to put down backer board and Tile and thus could cover the U cut-out. but I want to do it right and cut a nice neat hole in the plywood for the nippled to stick through then reattach the shut-off valve. What advice do you experts have? Leave it be and cut around or take a change and possibly break it or?
