I am using ArcGIS Pro.

I am currently working on a city's water main system. The way the mains were input into the system they are in tiny pieces. I want to merge them together so that they run from valve to valve. I am using the merge tool to merge the pieces of pipe together. The end result however, gives me 3 mains (the two originals that I merged, and the newly merged one).

How do I merge two features together and just end with the one newly merged feature?

    Have you looked at the instructions on this page? – Hornbydd Jan 30 '18 at 23:24

Try using the dissolve tool on a unique ID field each pipe belongs to, that will create a new dataset of just the dissolved features.
