    It's used here all the time for heat work. Saves you not having to sweat big fittings on a changeout. Water will drip out of a large heat main for a few hours making it harder to sweat. As long as it's not used on a steam system, temperature shouldn't be a problem. I would caution against using cleaning chemicals like Boiler Colloid with Propress fittings.

    Not so good for systems with glycol, the seals leak discoloring the pipe and fittings, it doesnt look so good.

    According to the handbook from their website:

    Hot and Cold potable water: 32F-250F at 200PSI with the "shiny black EPDM seal".
