        Used jet swett for a hundred. new kit close to 3 hundred. Pro-press, close to 3 thousand. Go with the jet swett kit. You will use it more often and it is a whole lot more versitile because the complete kit will plug from 1/2" through 3" then of course with the pro press you need a supply of 30 dollar 3/4" valves on the truck instead of 8 dollar swett valves, but hey, ain't we all been down this road before.

        Really though, All my service techs have a jet swett kit on their vans. They get used constantly and often. They are bullet proof (don't have to send them out for recalibration) and easy to use and they stop the drip instantly. No cords, no batteries, the whole kit weighs less than a set of jaws for a pro press. You can stuff the common sizes in the bottom of your tool bag.

          I have never used a jet sweat before, what kind of pressure will they hold or are they just for gravity drips?

            I've never put more than 15 or 20 psi on them so I can't really answer what they'll hold, but they're really intended for just gravity and residual pressure.
            No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

              I really like Jet Swets but my only complaint has always been that they only will hold 65 psi. After year (20?) of complaining every time I saw them at a show, they finally make a flow-through model in limited sizes which will handle what ever you need. There is another manufacturer out there I would like to try which looks better than Jet Swets but I forgot the name.

                Reed makes a copy (little different) called "Dam It". Dam It® Soldering Aid

                And you can get creative in a pinch with some AllThread washers, bolts, etc. Or even a test ball with an extension hose. Use your brain, but be careful.

                              mark, i've also complained and told them to make a flow through design. the excuse they always told me for year after year after year is they left them at the shop.

                              finally it appeared 1 show.

                              ps. a set of jet swets are 1/2''- 2''. the larger 2.5'', 3'' and 4'' are sold separately and cost big bucks.

                              i've had to replace my original 2'' one as their original design trapped water in the dead space between the rod and sleeve and rusted shut. they later improved the design with more spacing tolerance.
