    I'm a pipefitter not an insulator.

    Get the right trades involved. Don't want a condensation leak off a chilled water line cuz i wrapped it wrong.

    All the chilled water I see is professional stuff. They still do it right. Materials have changed some.

    The guy that taught me what I know about it showed me some nice tricks. Like the always sharpened chefs knife. Also how to split it on the lettering so you could line it back up perfect.

    It takes skil and patience.
