    This is a fallacy. In the early days, this was thought to be true and pushed by wholesalers. If you read the data sheets on blends, most clearly state that " you can top off up to 50% of the charge, up to three times". Some claim it matters where the leak occurs. Flange says, if it aint broke, don't fix it.....unless of course its what the customer wants, then by all means sell them new gas.

    We have been using it for at least that long on heating systems. I think we started around 2004 or so. I cant remember exactly, used to drink a lot back then.

    PEX is good......for letting cheap labor learn how to install water lines. Blue and red lines, hard to screw it up. The manoblock is nice for isolating by zone. what I don't like is the damn plastic taste in the water, and the price of the fittings when you need to make a repair, and yes, it does break.

    Operators are standing by. If you call in the next 10 mins we'll ship 2 for the price of 1. That's right 2 for the price of 1, just pay the additional shipping and handling.
    Remember operators are standing by.

    All very good points made, we had/have a major leaky condo/building/home issue here on the coast - buildings built with stucco finishes no roof overhang kind of California/Arizona style , lots of glass,flashing etc massive leak issue costs billions as well in the late 80s,early 90s type M copper pipe approved for plumbing so got put in with gusto, and so a few years later wore out completely - many buildings being retro fitted with new type L copper
    I cant help but think we might be pushed under the bus when propress fails at some point

    Have mixed feelings about them. Seems cool. But I have had 3 pool heaters that came factory connected that blew apart. Stainless to copper and titanium coated heat exchangers. Tool is very expensive and connectors have to be ordered. Maybe was not done right at factory.
