I was dumbfounded. This isn’t what we teach; Bob took the training! Why is he using compressed cartridges, and why isn’t there water in the line? I asked him if he used an air compressor, and was there water in the line, he responded:
“Your instruction says you need 2 guys to do the job, I prefer to work alone.”
Well, I shared, we recommend having someone else run the pressure rig, to inject controlled bursts of air. We recommend this because it works.
I also asked, why the line wasn’t filled with water? How are you going to hear the boil of there’s nothing there to actually boil? His response was:
“When I find leaks, I do it myself. The compressed C02 should be whistling out of the pipe but your equipment doesn’t allow me to hear it.”
This is where the importance of training comes in. We train you on the right way to find leaks, and it’s highly recommended that you actually do the things we instruct in training. They are laid out with the best methods for finding leaks, using the equipment in your Pro Complete Kit. Using highly sensitive, technologically advanced equipment allows users to hear a bird fart on a tree top from 60 feet away, and it also finds where leaks occur due to the pressure of the water trying to squeeze out of a crack, break or separation. Sometimes you have to create that sound, and you do it with the equipment and the methods we train you to use.
