If the metal pipe is galvanized, remove as much as that piping as possible. Start off with both piping materials and either glue or use threaded connections from the faucet.

Do not pressurize for a few hours until the solvent weld joints have cured; I myself would wait 24 hours.

I tried replacing the diverter valve in my own 3 valve diverter last year. It gave out on me yesterday, I can't get the diverter valve out , neither can the plumber . He is currently on his way to the supply house to pick up a new 3 valve diverter. My estimate is $331. Jon, I hope your project goes smoother (and cheaper) than mine. Good Luck.
