I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of moving from soldering to copper press fittings. I do mostly residential to small commercial projects. My concern is the price of the fittings compared to the labor to do the installation. On average the fittings are about 50% more and with some fittings like ball valves and special fittings can be up to 300% more. Even if you go with the press system it seems that your always going to be soldering some joints on the job i.e. zone valves, some air eliminators, water make up valves have solder joints. Does it make sense to invest in a product that will cost $1,500.00 to press a joint and the fitting may cost several dollars more. It may take me 1 minute to solder a joint and you could save in reality several dollars.
