        Where'd that come from?
        Years ago, I traced a flow problem to a 1" 90 with a 3/4" 90 stuck inside of it.
        The 90 was installed during a crawl job, evidently with inadequate lighting.

            [QUOTE=Plumbus;217437]Time to switch valve brand, no?

            They were willing to send me more replacements I said no. The project manager listened to the voice of reason ended upgetting 30 Nibco SPF 6000 or something like that. Cut them out, unsweated,cleaned, resweated, hooked up, tested to 80lbs. Not even a packing nut leaked. My helper installed the 2nd floor (have to wait for the acid etching and poly coating on the 1st floor to dry) Then retest .

              All the 2" B. V. c x c leaked. Two 3" also. Owner said pull them all. So, 21 units, 4 valves a piece. 30 or so of which have already been replaced. I will replace and retest.

                Heating side is done. Plug and play. This was my first Buderus. I would put one in my house. Chilled side is almost complete. Six drums of 50/50 prope, the York guys are coming tomorrow to dial in the chiller. Little bit left on the Lochnivar.

                    Found out that I've got six to pipe over the summer. It 'll be fun. The Burnham's are a total repipe, the green unit's are a replacement.

                                You do some real nice work. How'd you bend that straight copper pipe so well? Did you anneal it first?
                                Buy cheap, buy twice.
