How do commercial plumbers confirm water is shut down today?

Many commercial plumbers use the 'self-tapping screw' method, try to make a small slit in the pipe with a sawzall or drill a small hole to check if the pipe is live. These methods are very hacky, messy and risky.

How do commercial plumbers do drain downs today?

Whether commercial plumbers know or don't know if they have 1 or 50 gallons of water in a piping system that needs to be drained after they make their cut, commercial plumbers use buckets, trash cans, kitty pools, poly sheeting, etc. to collect water and protect property when cutting into pipes and catching excess water.

Drain Down Pro vs hot tapping

The Drain Down Pro tool has nothing to do with hot tapping. Hot tapping is a way to connect to a live pipe without shutting down the system. When using a DDP, you shut off the water first. Then use the DDP to 100% confirm the water is off, and drain down any excess water before doing your work.

Do I still need a Drain Down Pro when pipe freezing?

Absolutely! The Drain Down Pro can confirm the water is 100% frozen before making that butt puckering cut!
