Shark bite, proline, etc. They seem to work fine in places that have plenty of room... the sort of places that I'd have no trouble with a solder fitting. But in locations that I almost have to work by braille, places so tight that getting a torch in is nearly impossible, the places that an $8 press fit elbow seems suited for, in those locations, the press fittings leak like seives! Then the release tool wont release the fitting, and it is a huge headache to tear apart. Do they leak if pushed in too far? if slightly out of alignment? and if one is in a location where precise alignment isnt gonna happen, Then what to do?
