Bathroom shutoff valve

Hello,

I'm replacing my bathroom faucet. My shut off valve output hose is a pipe. Should I remove the bolt and replace with flex piping? My valves are older and I'm wondering if I should replace as well. Would it be easy as a cutting the pipe and Soldering a new valve on? Thank you in advance

Replacing with a flex line will be easiest since the rigid supply's uses a ferrule......And usually are not reused...

Why change the valve if its not causing issues?

If that valve has not been turned in a long while, you may find that it will leak through the stem or not shut of altogether. If it was me, I would replace the valves with new 1/4 turns. Now is the time to do it while you're replacing with a new faucet.

BTW...Use the stainless steel flex supply lines, not those plastic reinforced ones.
