Copper pipes - do i have a problem? Pics!


Please see the below pictures.


Does this look like it's a problem? or is this from the plummer being lazy.

thanks!

This joint was poorly due. Looks like too much flux was used. I would replace it, but if not leaking you do not need too.

It's not whats outside the joint its whats inside the joint that counts the outside of a joint does nothing to hold it together.

Agree with Bob.
