  • ProPress

    Will the ProPress work with Type M copper? What temp is maximum for the fittings? What's the pressure rating of a joint?

    Thanks.

    Almost forgot ProPressers. Do you sand your pipe as prep?

      We used M once in a while.Worked fine but no idea how the specs work out for it.
      The only problem we ran into was pro-pressing onto older pipe as the diameter was decreased so I would normally then scab on a piece from a coupling and then 'press on'.
      Only reamed in and out.Rarely sanded.Often filed.

        Gettin' my thread drift on. Jay-My buddy has an original KISS pinball machine from the 70's restored in his fun room. We play once in a while. Takes me back...

        Don't understand you "scabbing" technique. Elaborate if you feel like it.

          no problem on type m copper. only sand when the pipe is dirty as in underground.

          min- max temp. for potable water is 32-250f. @200#.

          chilled water with 50% glycol is 0f- 250f @200#.

            Thanks Rick. I knew you'd know. Started to look at Viega but got greedy for info from the minds here I guess.

            Thanks again.

              In this case: scab=solder.
              Sorry.Got carried away with my own nomenclature.
              "Cobble" would have been the same.
              Rats. I remember when that Kiss machine was brand new.
              Rick thanks yet again.Never had to over think the application as it has always been potable water.I have saved that Viega link.
