How much of the copper tubing do I cut out to install the SHARKBITE SLIP EB45
Please see section 1d of the link below. "Cut out the section of pipe depending on the valve size. For 1/2" valves cut 4.75", for 3/4" valves cut 5.25"".

why is there an asterisk after 'Lead Free*' on your box?
The asterisk on the box corresponds to a proposition 65 warning located in the installation instructions regarding lead. The warning reads "This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. Notice to Installer/Contractor: California law requires this notice be provided to the consumer/end user of this product". All brass plumbing products by all manufacturers, even the ones considered lead free, contain at least a small amount of lead for manufacturing purposes. The law requires there be less than .25% by weight in order to be considered lead free.

Not all our customers can afford to put all our products on their shelf. You should work with a local vendor to place a special order for one.

24384-0045 I bought and installed this pressure regulator and now my water is pulsating and my pipes are banging. I have seen three other reviews that this product is know for this how are you going to help me with this problem?
The EB45 is a compact valve. The only times we have heard about this vibrating or pulsating was when it was installed in a high flow system. This doesn't happen every time it's in a system like that, but when it pulsates, it's due to that system.
You can try increasing the PSI threshold on the valve. If that does not work, we do offer larger valves that handle higher flowing system better such as the EB 25. You can view this product at this link: http://www.cashacme.com/cashacme/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/EB25_Spec_2014.pdf.
