Though I'm not a professional plumber or AC tech, I've done more than my fair share of sweat soldering copper pipe and fittings over the years. Occasionally (not often, but just often enough to remember the instances), I'll get a joint that simply won't take solder. Normally, the culprit is usually ascribed to water in the lines turning to steam under heat, and we all know you can't sweat solder steam. Usually, I'll discard the botched fitting, cut the end off the pipe, and usually get success the next time around.
They're too expensive to use for all joints, so I'll continue to do the dry joints with solder, but from now on all wet joints get Push-Lok'ed. Your comment and pic remind me of something the counter guy at the plumbing supply house told me a year or so back.
I've never minded working copper, but the older I get, the more frustrated I've become with it.
Anyone who has been around mobile homes will give you an earful about flexible plastic pipe and push-lock fittings. The big century old Victorian house my BIL and I flipped back in '08 was originally plumbed with galvanized thread pipe. Did I mention I hate threaded pipe, and that I hope whoever originally decided it was a good piping system for a house is enjoying his just reward? Another way if you know a plumber (my brother) that has the expensive crimping tool, is copper fittings with O-rings. This tutorial is designed to help you to understand the general techniques used to make a PEX crimp connection. Fully insert the PEX fitting into the PEX tubing so that the fitting’s shoulder touches the tubing. In both examples below, connection was done improperly and must be redone after removing the crimp ring and re-calibrating the tool.
If you’re using an Everhot PXT3101 decrimper, use a quick switch knob to select the PEX tubing size. The remaining piece of PEX tubing can now be easily removed, leaving an undamaged PEX fitting which can be used again.
The process of installing PEX tubing installation with a crimp method is the same for both Oxygen Barrier PEX tubing and Non-Barrier PEX types. PEX crimp connection method described in this tutorial is suitable for all types (A,B,C) of PEX tubing, regardless of brand or color.
Crimp connection method is particularly popular among DIY'ers because of the ability to check a completed connection with a go-no-go gauge.
For sweat or threaded type PEX fittings, the transition part must always be connected first (also cooled off, if it is a sweat connection). All orders with a total of $250 or more, not including taxes (NY only) and coupons, qualify for a free FedEx Ground delivery.

PEX is a polyethylene tubing that has been developed to replace rigid piping systems such as, steel pipe, copper tubing, CPVC among other products. PEX tubing offers flexibility in installation techniques – branch and supply or manifold installation.
Besides looking cool, these hardened steel reamers from RIDGID have both an inner and outer cone so you can both ream and debur stainless steel, copper, steel, and aluminum with same tool. A pressing machine squeezes fittings together to make solderless joints in copper, stainless and PEX tubing even with residual fluid still in the pipe. The Stanley Virax M20 Plus is a pistol-grip pressing machine about the size of a regular cordless drill. At first when I saw this I thought it’d be great for the “city dwellers” to prevent a prankster from strolling by, turning on the water, and walking away.

The copper plumbing is run in the basement, and it's obvious to me that there hasn't been a professional plumber do anything down there.
I've always felt that threaded pipe was the devil, and I'm beginning to feel the same about copper. Try to make the cut as close to the end of the fitting as possible without scratching it or damaging the cutter. The tool has two jaws – one is for cutting the ring (the sharp one) and one to support the PEX fitting from the inside (the dull one).

Took a quick trip to the plumbing supply house a mile down the road and $8 later I was back in business. And the biggest compliments we have are the hundreds of thousands of repeat customers over the years. From start to finish was less than four minutes, and that includes cutting the pipe to the proper length. I can think of at least three rooms full of finished ceilings we had to tear out to fix leaks that started due to us working on the system in a totally different part of the house.
