Copper Pipe 101


cool....especially when a threaded to swet is built up... always solder first before threading anything in...if you have to solder near an exsisting sealed threaded pipe the wrench in a bucket of ice works well...put the wrench on the pipe between the thread and the soldering joint heat sinks it right up... not over heating it,and let the solder work around the fitting
