      It’s great that you mentioned that to properly install a press fitting, you would need to select the jaw with the appropriate size for it to fit perfectly for application. My father is planning to replace the press fittings of our water heaters himself, so I’ll share this information with him. Although, I would still try to convince him to just hire a professional service. Thanks for this!
