My ridgid sf2500 got stolen and I bought a rothenberger and used it for the first time. I have pics in my album but don't know have to transfer to this thread yet.
At first I thought you were talking about a frozen pipe situation,,,,,,,,but I now I see you are freezing a pipe on purpose Looks like a really ,,,,tool! I had to thaw frozen pipes today,,,,,,,,,I am sick of the cold. but is does give us plumbers work
No I'm in Vancouver Canada doesn't get too cold here. This model is a little different than the ridgid. Easier to put on pipe and also has a thermostat on it. But its in C not F on the surface of the pipe it went down to -30C.
The one thing I like about it is that as long as you keep the machine running it keeps the line frozen. If you run out of gas and you haven't finished your job you're in trouble. I'm sure there are you tube videos on this. When I freeze the pipe I use a spray bottle and spray the pipe and the heads. Once I get a ice block going I know that the pipe is frozen.
