Pipefitter vs Plumber
I'm trying to get someone to sweat some copper pipe for me. Out of these two trades, who would be better at such a job?

Plumber .

Pipefitting is more of an industrial trade.

Plumbers sweat copper pipe on a daily basis in a residential setting.

I'm a tradesman who works beside pipefitters on a daily basis. Trust me call a plumber if you're having house plumbing issues.

Once saw a nice Africa chap who had installed his range cooker by himself.

He was shocked to be told that a finger tight joint with electrical tape wrapped around it wasn't considered safe in the UK.

That's pretty cool, compression fittings. I bet they are quite expensive. Especially the crimping tool.

Nice though!

Re: Pipefitter vs Plumber
Personally I'd rather do it myself. Copper is REALLLLY easy to work with. Clean/scratch ALL joints/fittings, use lots of flux wherever you want solder to stay and a good torch (M.A.P. gas) over propane.
If your job is big enough it'd be worthwhile to invest in the basic tools (pipe cutter, scratch brushes and cloth, torch, channel lock pliers-2 pair and a small selection of your common fittings) Great to have on hand for emergency repairs. If you've don't have the time/confidence and have the $$ call a (reputable) plumber. If I remember correctly, the guy I worked for 20 years ago charged like $10.00 each for every installed fitting. (Not very reputable or so I thought) I'd always use less parts on invoice than I actually used.oops
