Henry Sanford says:

Could you do a video explaining how to properly press on Baseboards and inserts with Propress on thinner pipes etc for extensions and such?

stuart blackwood says:

one step at a time replacing skilled workers

Luda Crees says:

I'll stick to soldering and plastic/pvc/PEX

Badbebe says:

Great video. DIY homeowner here and I'm about to pull the trigger on one of these for two upcoming hybrid water heater installations that involve repiping. Expensive it is but it will save me a lot of headaches and stress… DIY not to save money but to do it right.

rudedogii says:

How do those seals hold up over time. Clorine tends to wroght most rubber seals.

paintball130 says:

the fact that you can use it on a line full of water is the biggest selling point imo… great for repair work

Mr. Gus says:

We have soldered copper plumbing that is almost 125 years old in our old farm hours….no problems. I wonder if those rubber O-rings will do as well….

D Le says:

I don't trust the o-ring used in this press method. The o-ring is degrading over time.

Sean-E-Boy says:

I'm a plumber in Toronto. I do highrise buildings mainly, I enjoy soldering but I wish we would use pro press.

Mary Glasser says:

Much better then solder and torch. Pex is way cheaper and easier.

Cheeze Ball says:

For me soldering isuch better and quicker in most settings…..for basement and areas where water doesn't shut off 100%, or exposed piping…I love pro press

DraconicProductions says:

There are also cheaper manual propress tools

Percy Faith says:

That's a cool system. Aimed mostly towards the pro plumber.

snookchaser says:

Soldering a wet pipe easy and super cheap at the day old bread store.
Create a ball out of white bread after preparing the pipe and fitting shove the bread ball up the pipe as a stop. Once the job is done and water is back on pull the aerator from and faucets in that line and run the water for 5 minutes all the bread will dissolve into the water replace aerators and your done.

Big Hell says:

Just a question for you contractors and such, i know this tool saves time and money….is that the reason these things are so so expensive like 4000 for the kit? I was just curious, i work around these tools but im not in the trade, i just work with plumbers and fitters

Memo says:

Hi! Good video!!! Excuse me, Do you have any video how repair or change when this conexion is broken?

TUZkozs Service says:


PayThePlumber says:

Propress is expensive unless you value time.

fuqui035 says:

I will wait for the price to drop

Abner Vazquez says:

If I buy the pex one, can l
change the presses for pro

Qusin111 says:

Pro press is easy but every single joint will leak in 15-20 years

TheMakfather says:

How can I install a T on a 4” copper line using propress (bropress) 😀
To be more specific on an existing line that is already installed and solid and cant be bent or flexed

Mbah carrier says:

I'm waiting for another video about copper pipes….success for "Got2Learn"

Mbah carrier says:

good video, the copper to copper that I usually use at vocational high school for cooling and air conditioning engineering, the connector used is plain not like in this video

bigman55434 says:

These have their place, but you would NEVER find one of these fittings in my house. Solder only. It lasts a lifetime. These do not.

Harvey Norman says:

Is this recommended for direct burial applications?

Iron John says:

1 word,,, PEX.

David G says:

It sucks that the de-burring tool only has 3 blades in it. Its very awkward on smaller tubing.

HomeGrownPyro says:

Damn I just bought these tonight thinking they were just push on fittings like shark bites lol.. had no clue you needed pretty much a machine to put them on
