Pressure Testing Triples
For any of you guys putting on used triples I recommend you test them before you install them.Check out the vid clip below of my backyard pressure test job.
The seller told me before the purchase that he did a fast test on them.
This is what I found on the ones I got.
mag pipe good,center pipe good, pto pipe bad leak!
Seller said he didn't know they were leaking, I believe him.
He offered to pay for warranty shipping, which I thought was cool.
The pto pipe was sent to Factory Pipe Products on Monday. Wonder if Factory Pipe will warranty fix or replace this bad pipe?

This is a sticky in the "how to" section, should not have been that hard to find.
Please new people take the time to do a search, use the advanced option if needed.

Condesending attitudes are not pleasant and do not make one appear smarter

May I suggest you take a few minutes and learn how the site works. I did a simple search prior to making my statement and came up with several hits. If you noobies are just too impatient to search, and only want to clutter up my area with repeat threads to satisfy your need for instant gratification, or is it I need personal attention? then I will hound the hell out of you. This could have been simple, but the Condescending statement set me off. Take notice

Search works great, for some things.
I've found searching to be difficult for some things, for the following reasons:
- use of "lingo", acronyms, etc. that are not apparent to the uninitiated
- site does not index 3 letter words except those on a specific list by the admin. I got lucky with "PTO" yesterday but "gas" if searching for "gas valve" for example might not be helpful
- a lot of people just don't know how to spell
- more of the aforementioned lingo - I may find a post that tells me everything I need to know, except in a language I don't understand until I do a dozen more searches to learn the lingo
To avoid this in the future I try to make sure I use all variations of a word / name / acronym when I am posting a question, and if I subsequently find the answer through a search, I try to link to it in my post.
