    no misprint. remember it was production. i would shut off the water to the building. while it was draining i would distribute the proper stops and estucions to the units. i had already pre prepped the stops with dope/ wax.

    as long as the counter tops were not installed, no problem. the copper bullets were cut, an estucion was installed and the stop was tightened in a matter of seconds. with the proper wrench, it was no problem.

    then i still had to turn on the water and walk the units, to make sure the painters and drywallers didn't leave a valve turned on looking for water.

    ps. as jojo just mentioned, i was 20 years younger

    now i can probably do 500. wanna race

        HAHA Duck, the race is on

        This was from condos/apartments, with each haqving 3 per bathroom with a toilet and sink, 2 for the laundry and the kitchen had 2 plus an ice maker or bar sink. So he didn't have far to go.

        He doesn't have to work this hard any more. (As I type this Rick is on his way to an emergency-on a Sunday)

          I remember hearing a legend about the job where Rick and two other guys did a 55-story building from canning the slab to setting finish in less than one year.

              Thats quite an accomplishment there Rick

              I think I got the best commercial plumbers in the business and they would never be able to do that. You should feel proud

                        I have a couple types of pullers on my van, a need to have tool. I kinda do a pre test, I try to pull the nut a ferrell off with a pair of channel locks before I use the puller, if it fails, then I ise the puller, if the pipe stretches, then you have no choice but to use a MIP.

                        As far as for very slow leaks, I check and re-check the connection when I use a compression set up, I also clean the copper before I slide on the new nut and ferrell.

                        I never cut my copper close to the escusion, I leave room for the either me, or the next guy who has to replace it someday.

                        I piece stops suck to high heaven, worst thing around, especially the ones with the little white round knob nasty, nasty nasty stuff.

                        Remember, quality, not quantity. I would rather loose the job then install junk and be called on it later.

                              Does anyone know where to get a puller at?

                              Also how come it's not safe to just add a new valve on the old nut and ferrell? I'm just curious.

                                You can get a puller at most supply houses and I have seen them at Lowes and Home Depot.

                                I'm not really sure why it wouldn't be safe to reuse the same nut and ferrule if they are in good condition. I have done it hundreds of times -- I hope I haven't been doing it wrong all this time. Sometimes it is just necessary to replace the nut and/or the ferrule due to distortion of the pipe, ferrule or condition of the nut. Also, some of the older compression valves have different threads than the new valves and the nut won't screw on properly.
