    very good.

    the valve is a total of 5'' end to end. the socket depth is much deeper than a normal valve or fitting. there is actually a second o-ring in each end. this o-ring doesn't get crimped. if you actually measure properly, you can cut and slide the valve down far enough and then slide it back up. you need to make sure you properly mark the insertion depth and even it out.

    do you even own a propress?

        No sir Mr. Rick, I do not own a ProPress. I've been squandering my money on food and heat.

        The plumbing commission has not approved it for N.C. yet. I looked into it 2 years ago. Lots of situations it could come in handy.

            List price looks good, I saw a display at the supply house that I can walk too today, so I know I can get them, now I have a reason to. i have been using R&W, and Jomar Press valves as I like the handles better than viega's, but I really like the additional features of the cimpress's

              red and white is a good valve with nice metal handle. but the cimm has that added locking on/ off feature and the slip feature.

                  back in 1983 they allowed the prv on the service instead of needing one on the heater. pressure is still below 80#
