I have been using my Ridgid propress for about a year now and probably have less than 3000 uses on the same 100B tool. I own a water softener company so some jobs can literally only have 4 crimps per job. The problem I am having has been that on the last 4 jobs, I have had only some fittings leaking after pressing. Not all of them. Just some which is weird. Why some and not all? I am starting to think it actually may be the 1" copper pipe but I am not certain. The leaks are very very slow leaks but obviously need to be cut out and replaced. A few questions. Can I re-press the same fittings and will it help or hurt? Anyone experience this same problem and could it be the copper? Tool? Fittings? This has become very frustrating as well as costly on some larger jobs. I really have not had any problems with 3/4". Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome as soon as possible. This is my first post here. Thanks in advance, Tom
