I do believe me and houseplumber have had a few discussions about using brass compression fittings on cpvc. This is a great example why it shouldn't be done.
The videos may take 1/2 an hour to process so check back in a bit if they don't load.
Seems like I'm getting one every week now. Seeing as how Polk county is absolutely ate up with cheap cpvc piped homes, it's a great place to be a service plumber who specializes in leak location and re-piping :thumbup:
Note, the blue glue was from the HO when he changed the water heater...
If you had to crawl through a tight attic with water lines running on top of the bottom cords of the trusses, which material would you be more scared to have to crawl over?
A: 15 year old polybutylene tubing with brass fittings and copper crimp rings?
B: 15 year old CPVC tubing of any...
