Good choice. Sometimes saving money just isn't worth it.


you are absolutely right. it's very hard to get good, fast, and cheap.

I pressure tested the one we received today and it had three pinhole leaks in the welds and another from a crack in the bottom end tank :/

so the pinholes can be fixed... dunno about the crack, possibly be fixed, does it appear it happened in shipping? pic?

so keep in mind next time have it pressure tested before you decide what youre getting. or take your materials to a pro with all tge tools for the job.

no offense soccer3000. i think diy is a great idea. while there were some issues, and that ic core is not the equivalent as the professional made ic's it will do just fine and save some $. just get them pressure tested to fix any of those holes if any. no ones always perfect.
