Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time is Money, and this thing makes money. The majority of my work is residential water heaters, filter systems, pressure regulator and expansion tanks. The ability to be able to work when a plumbing system is not completely dry and without soldering is a game changer for me. On average, the RP 200-B saves me 15 minutes per install. when you multiply that out @ 4 installs per day I save and hour a day. An hour a day is 250 hours by years end. Time is money. and 250 hours per year per service tech is a huge savings. The return on investment for me was realized after just 14 weeks in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better result, wish it was cheaper. The tool saves a ton of time, removes any smoke (and setting off of fire alarms), leaves a much cleaner work space and produces an immaculate finish where pipe is exposed (no mess from sodder work). While it is rather expensive to buy (and the fittings aren't cheap), even compared to some of my other very high end power tools, it really does produce a great finish. It is also so much quicker to get a good trusted result. Excellent tool. Wish it was cheaper though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tool the Ridgid RP 200-B has the best shape and features for the work I do, it fits into the tightest of spots I chose the RP 200-B because of the shape, long and slender this allows it to fit into those narrow spaces and tight spots. After using this tool I don't know if I want to solder anymore, Ridgid tools meet my expatations without a dought, I have been a plumber all my life and it is all I have ever done and I have many Ridgid tools from pipe wrenches to power heads in the plumbing trade tools, and as far as a hobby of wood working goes I stuck with Ridgid with those tools as well from circular saw, jointer, table saw and many more, I guess you could say my favorite color is orange, thanks Ridgid

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Press Tool Just used my Ridgid RP200-B Press Tool for the first time today installing a 40 gallon power vented water heater in a new location in the customer's utility room. Easily saved two hours in labor on this one job. I will never solder another pipe again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I was expecting. Just not sure on durability yet as I've only owned it for two weeks but if it is like my other rigid tools I'm sure this will not be a concern.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The product has great potential I like what this unit can do. However my unit made 4 presses and never worked again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool. Very happy to have the press gun. I had worked for another company that had a few of them, and always used the press tool there. When I started my own company, I couldnt afford the tool, until there was a promotion. The only thing that kept me from using the tool and the product was the price. I would be very happy to review the product in a few months from now, and then again in a year.

Can this tool be used to make refrigerant line?

What is the maximum pressure can this joint withstand? what is the life of this joint? What would be the resistant to the mechanical damage?
Asked by: oothb
I do not believe this tool can be used with refrigerant lines, Chilled water lines yes for pressing with the proper o-ring, This tool is for pressing copper not for welding or silver-brazing.
