            I have always seen them tighten to about 28,000 P.S.I. they also will have a stretch length that needs to be monitored and documented.

              Good reason to be afraid of an inspector,that makes up His own code! He told Me once to install a drip leg on every 90 degree change of direction! never happened!

                      Have you actually ever done any work or are you the second guy to ever walk on water.
                      If so your going to have to debate Rick for the title.

                        Re: Confession time, No Lie

                        I've popped one.Back when I was a laborer a W/C needed to be re-roughed,solid footing 2' thick never even knew what one looked like.Remember when they used to use the whimpy 1/2" cable with YELLOW sleeve.

                        On the other hand I have seen them blow out a garage floor a few units down on a long row of condos.No,I didn't do it.

                          i have walked on water before

                          well it was just for a split second as i was being towed on an inner tube behind a boat when they decided to do 50 into a turn and whipped me around so fast that as i hit the wake and flipped, there was a second of me skipping water on my feet i can still feel it in my bones.

                          i'll see if the video still exist as it's been 19 years and joeys done some cleaning of my stash of adventures.

                            I may have had my water sandals on but I am not perfect. We use to do a ton of slab leaks for S&S homes because no one else would work on a post tension slab. We never saw cut but used a pacometer and a chipping hammer instead. Recently I had a 24" core done looking for a slab leak on a lawsuit and they used the Hilti to find the cables.
