We use it when allowed. Code allows it. A lot of architects do not.
They are architects. They never give a reason:furious:What's the full disclosure on their reasoning?
I'd use the stuff if it wasn't so damn expensive. What is that, like 4 grand worth of fittings there? :laughing:
I replaced a water heater today and for the first time, I needed a get-swet, or propress ball valve.
The trick I "hope" got it solder was heating the pipe an inch above the socket of the ball valve really high and it took the solder as water was slowly dripping out of the valve.
I pray that the solder didn't ring around the edge of that brass socket. That's not a good solder joint. It did however liquify all around pretty well, didn't want to build up, like it wasn't pulling in.
