I disagree---the solder will flow--and soldering a part of an assembly first--then hoping that it is clean enough to add to your piping? Never works well for me---

We all have systems that work for us but not well for others---this would not work well for me---

True, though I do clean the remaining fitting after soldering the assembly and letting it cool...

Success!!

All soldered up and holding pressure! I think I even got the entire system bled too.. Also changed the waterlogged expansion tank too.

Thanks for the advice on this one!
I have another question about filling the hole in, but I think I will start a new thread on that one.

Before you start a new thread and fill in that hole...keep in mind that that pipe is going to want to move a bit when it heats and cools. Give it room to do that.

Your right. It originally had black foam insulation around it. I will do the same.

I posted another thread about filling in the concrete in the concrete forum.

Nice clean work! Do replace the foam--good job!
