BIG Dent in MegaBomb header!


Recommended Posts

If the dent is in the U bend section, use the ice trick.  If it's in the "bomb" section, then you should NOT use the ice trick, nor should you fill that part with water when you try to "freeze out" a dent.  In that case, you should set it up with plugs for both ends, one with a means of applying compressed air, and heat the pipe while it has 30-40 psi in it.  More if you're brave, or if 40 doesn't do it. 

 

Pipes get cracked by the ice method only if you melt out the ice by force (heat greater than water) for the most part.
