You should not need to, no!
The universal compatibility of bluebot across all pipe types (Copper, PVC, PEX & Galvanized) and up to 2” in size allows us to almost guarantee that bluebot will work on your home.
You will not need to shutoff your water or cut any pipe. In some rare instances, if you do not have access to 4” of straight pipe, you would need to find an alternative location, or hire a plumber to install a longer section of straight pipe. This situation has not yet been encountered across our 150+ test devices in the field and while it is technically a possibility, one we consider to be extremely unlikely.
