    Londonguy,

    A properly made flare joint won't leak. Yes brazed fittings are preffered, but flared fittings are fine. We use them in refrigeration work all the time with no leaks. I have walkin coolers out there that I installed 12 years ago with flare fittings, and they have never leaked.

    Strong like Ox- smart like tractor.
    Is it my imagination or is there alot of posters lately that slip in here with a girls name that start asking "dumb blond" questions, then start using phrases that only get used by people that have some idea of the subject.
    Awhile back, a gal from Arizona I believe came in here and asked some good questions. She got some good answers, and nobody went sideways on her. Since then it seems there's been more than just a few "girlie" names come through here with a hint of "what can I get started with this" sound to it.
    If the OP is legit I'm sorry, but......it's seeming all to familiar.

    As long as they are flare they will be fine, just make sure their not compression fittings. If they are it's a sign of a real hack job.

    Compression fittings where never intended to be used on any refrigeration or HVAC system.
