    Re: Options for stopping water trickle while soldering

    You could start by being honest for a change. You're obviously not an engineer and you're not a plumber. I think most here know what you are.

      "Other than the Jet Swet what are the other options for stopping water flow. I don't expect this to be an issue for me on this project but it's always good to be prepared."


      "The photos I've seen of Jet Swet only shows a straight arrangement. "

      "I've never had an issue with water draining and messing up my joints even at the lowest point in the house - I just started this thread to see if there were any new/state of the art tools for this that I may have missed over what I have known from the past."

      "I just used a Sharkbite for temporary caps and they work great. "


      I've come to the conclusion that you're full of it blue_can. You come here looking for answers to the simplest of questions and then you put down the professionals with years of experience? You could at least attempt to be honest instead of lying to get your answers. You are the definition of a HACK.

        " but at the same time you shouldn't be attempting to tell him to hire a pro."

        WHY THE HELL NOT? If this person shows up here pretending to be something he's not and could be putting others in danger why wouldn't you tell him to call a pro? Look at his posting history. He's not asking about his own house, he's a HACK looking for someone to hold his hand. As I mentioned earlier it's not about helping others, it's all about you.

          Rick don't insult the masses because you are so high and mighty. I can understand you thinking can, can, do better work than everyone. Because plumbers in your area are lazy and use clamps to fix leaks. Or silicone tape. Cmon.

          The argument about him asking for advice makes sense. I'm going to go ask my pharmacist how to make Viagra. Just because he owns a home doesn't mean he has any right to get advice on how to plumb. Now if he is on well and septic, fine. But city utilities are shared by, a whole city. which means him screwing up not only could affect him, but me. If I lived in his city.

          Now. I'm calling you out. Don't back peddle and make excuses. Blue come down here and take the Pepsi challenge. let's install two water heaters and see who's work is better.

            Years ago, I was on a job at a resort hotel's kitchen and I needed a piece of "white bread" for a pesky leak. The Executive Chef was looking over my shoulder and I asked him to grab me a piece of bread.

            After 10 minutes, I'm wondering where he went, so I crawl out from under this piece of equipment and look up to see him coming down the aisle carrying a plate.

            He thought I was hungry and had made me a roast beef sandwich that sat over 6" tall, added a scoop of potato salad and piece of fruit garnish to "set off the plate".
