Another PROPRESS FAILURE same as HARVEY had
Did you ship your defective fittings and propress machine to me in Western, MA.??
I would like to laugh but I'm not in the mood after a 13 hr day.
I had a propress failure, brand new Apollo 1 1/4" no-lead ball valve. TG the leak was on the downstream side or I would have been in worse trouble.
It's leaking at one of the indentations exactly like the one in Harvey's picture. The only difference is the metal in the indentation on my leak is still there, it didn't punch through. It's not much more than a pinhole leak but a leak is a leak and most definitely coming from the indentation. It is from the indentation closest to the valve.
I have a feeling the brass fittings that are no-lead may be the problem....not tempered right or something, I don't have a clue.
This was costly as I had 3 hrs OT that I shouldn't have had but with draining, filling and two trips to the supply house it is what it is. Not to mention the cost of the valve, 1 90 and 1 coupling, not many fittings really, could have been worse,
not to mention getting crap from the customer a University "what's taking so long"
The propress machine is a well used Ridgid battery powerd 2" machine
More stress than I needed today.
And the worse part is WHAT IS CAUSING THIS, if it happened once (actually twice me and Harvey) Murphy's law you know it's going to happen again.
Whose turn will it be next??
I will post a picture tomorrow but you really can't see anything.
