    I'm tired of these mediocre "semi flammable" refrigerants. If we're going to do it let's do it right.
    Unless we change direction we are likely to end up where we are going.

    Just curious, why didn't you just unsweat the valve? Why remake the whole thing?

    Pro press sure makes life easier on bigger pipes, don't have to worry about water still draining also.

    So I did this by myself... and the reason I didn't unsweat it is because of the continuous water flowing out. Which makes brazing or soft soldering a lost cause. Plus look at it it's a shiny and pretty.

    I even put it on Roto Lock valves and the new damn Copeland Steel access valves. Who in the hell allows Steel on a suction service valve?

    Everyone. Especially the larger ones.

    Steel is standard.
