    Thanks for reading my posting. I'm trying to get a clear answer on this. Is it permissible in Ontario, Canada to use, say, one of these nice Ridgid ratchet pipe benders to bend 1/2" or 3/4" (using the right bender!) hard copper? The Ontario code says:

    I don't intend on bending M and this is for fresh water supply. I guess I don't know what "bending temper" means. Anyone have any thoughts? I've had answers from a couple of inspectors, and they're of varying clarity (!) I guess because not many people do this bending work anymore.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
