copper press fitting question
I see alot of press fittings being used on some service calls i do and most of the time it is being used on stuff i feel could have very eaisly been soldered but what ever but what i have noticed is on most the fitting and pipe looks to be completrly squared when pressed, just wonder how this would effect flow espically since most of these repairs where done on heating systems.On a side note does a green ring around the outside of the bell of the fitting constuite a leak .Just wondering ,i can understand the time savings but i basically i think it looks like crap and is a nightmare when you have to do repairs or replacement of piping near this stuff ,i guess i just don,t see the advantage exsept for the speed thing and the extra costs between installation equiptment and materal just don.t add up but it seems to be very popular w the flat rate guys and there south american workers ,i guess the lower pay scale and higher hourly rate offsets the materal cost and call backs .Sorry for the rant but it gets sad cutting this crap out and tossing it just because you have to change a prv and backflow not bad scrap through.Peace and good luck clammy
