    In less than a month on these boards you've established yourself as one of the hostile insulters that have plagued these boards for way too long.
    We've seen it all before.

    I know, you're the big expert who knows it all and can't stand the hundreds of other contributors on these boards who also have valid input.

    You've got a closed mind, pal!
    And an ignorant one at that!

    Do us all a favor and go haunt some other forum, along with your pal Leslie.

    Get lost, in other words.

    Some people shouldn't be allowed to use computers!
    I'm sorry if I have offended you. All I'm trying to do is to help someone out by giving them the proper way of doing a job. I don't think you would see any one that has been in the heating business advise someone to use radiator hose on a heating system. If you have something constructive to add to this thread then do so. Attacking me helps no one.

    John

    Don't apologize to me John, apologize to the OP and to Nashua.

    Valid suggestions were being exchanged, then YOU come along and slam NT who is a vital contributor to the forum with hundreds of posts.

    You might try reading some of them before you go into your insulting mode.

    If people like you ran things every homeowner would be arrested for fixing a leaky faucet, light fixture, or leaky pipe.

    Yup, they're ALL code violations for a DIYr to try and fix it, instead of calling a "licensed plumber" who wants hundreds or thousands of $$$ for the repair.

    We live in a DIY world where the internet, Home Depot, Lowe's and the DIYr have, Thank God, made the reign of outrageous plumber costs and arcane "code violations" uninforceable.

    Something YOUR outdated mind will NEVER grasp.

    Have you thought about going into TV repair?

    Maybe you should consider the benefits of waiting until you have a few legitimate, helpful posts under your belt before commencing to take the piss out of another newb. Your new adversary IMHO said absolutely nothing that could be taken as an insult to a normal mind.
    Radiator hose for hydronic systems might be acceptable for some very temporary emergency or diagnostic situation, but geez! the only reason it's used at all anywhere is because the systems demand a vibration-isolation property for the connection above all other considerations. Solid piping is always preferable. It is less prone to damage and degradation than radiator hose.
    It's the most common practice in threaded pipe repairs to take it apart at a union, if any, and work back from there. or you must cut a pipe or break a fitting, take it apart in both directions (to fittings) and end by inserting a union to close the loop. If you insert a run of copper into the black iron, you close the loop with a repair coupling or flexing the pipe to get the last fitting mated.
    I have to think that your tirade evidences a satirical mock-outrage and is unreal. Surely you can't be serious.

    Come on, mongel, you can't be serious with a tag like "mongrel".

    You claim you're trying to learn carpentry but now trying to pass as a "heating expert".

    Your post demonstrates your total ignorance of heating, let alone carpentry.

    "Florida John is mired in the swamp,
    the mongrel is marching in his medieval stomp,
    they're both a loser part of leslie, the useless wonk."

    What's with all these sock puppets cropping up like spring weeds?
