No, I brought it up simply to explain where and how the ABYC comes to present its standards, partly from the CFR and partly from evidence and other sources.

Eric, please read very carefully I NEVER stated that the CFR said that. I said the ABYC says that but never said the CFR stated that.

Yes that is what CFR 46 says never disputed that.

Yes, I think I said most of that too.

Yes I too have seen all type of connections done incorrectly but more bad solder than anything, mostly due to incorrect practices.

Eric
Are you calling me an "internet expert" who does not know anything? Not very becoming behavior when we agree on the vast majority of what we are discussing. You take me out of context, make up stuff that I never said and then insult me? Cool, welcome to the forum..
