Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect plumbing tool, fast, easy. great tool to quickly put pipe together, so many options as the accessories are expanding almost weekly, more and more fittings coming to be pro press fittings, best is being able to fix leaks even with water running out of pipe. All that said, you have to think that after 30,000+ presses tool needs to be serviced so always wondering if this is my last press. not sure how long that is or will be, but one does have to wonder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a must! This Ridgid tool is a must have for any seroius plumber. It takes no time or no effort to do what it used to take me lots of time and effort to solder joints under houses. It truley is a heaven sent, I am not as young as I used to be and for me the cost of owning this tool is well wotrth the not having to mess around in tight places like i did when i was younger.

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

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.
