I like how the guy is talking while power tools are being used...and there is music blaring as well...they use dewalt tools then some cheap *** pliers....but yea i bet that's probably a $800 to $1000 repair
Nice video overall!!
Poor Planning On Your Part Does Not Constitute An Emergency On My Part!! You can fire me...but you can't tell me what to do!
2.5''-4'' xlc/ copper fittings use a shear ring to bite into the copper. i believe that just cutting the shear ring with a grinder/ die grinder would achieve the same results without exposing the vertical riser to all the copper shavings that fell into the line while cutting with the saw.
a 4'' tee would be approx $150. and if you're proficient in this work, it shouldn't take 30 minutes total for the replacement.
1/2''-2'' would not be the same style repair as the fitting and copper tube actually get crimped.
Agree they should have put some thought into protecting the system from contamination. Simply laying a clean rag over the open ends of the pipe or slipping a plastic bag and taping it tight would go a long way toward keeping the system clean. Can't do much about the swarf from the cut on the riser, its gonna get int he pipe no matter what. So hopefully their plan includes flushing the system to remove it. On the horizontal runs it an easy matter to reach in and remove any swarf/filings, at in this size pipe.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
