Is there a way to check if points are snapped to lines without having to export to geodatabase then creating a topology? Also, bulk snap these points?

there is Finding dangles on line features—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop but I doubt you have that

you could use Feature Vertices To Points—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop  and just get the dangle points

or Extending multiple lines—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop but there are limitations again

so that probably leaves you with what you don't want to do, unless there are some free tools at www.ian-ko.com

I would like to check if my valves are snapped to pipes in my SQL Server database w/o having to export to geodatabase, create topology and check that way and also move any valves within a certain tolerance to snap to the pipe without having to do them individually.

Have a look at What are geometric networks?—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop  these are designed for utilities. You may also be interested in The Local Government Information Model—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop.​ The easy way to find valves intersecting lines is a select by location, not fool proof but would give you an idea.

I did create a geometric network, but needed to snap valves automatically instead of one by one and I was trying to do this inside SQL Server rather then having to export to geodatabase for the network.

Interesting...I tried the SNAP yesterday and got an "ERROR 000800 The value is not a member of END I VERTEX I EDGE" so I thought it wouldn't work. I went ahead and filled in the TYPE and DISTANCE and ran the tool anyway and it seemed to work...don't know why the "ERROR" message was shown. Thank you !
