Question

Electrical solder on copper pipes?


I just soldered a pex fitting (I guess it's brass) onto a baseboard radiator (copper pipe). Is this a bad thing? Should I redo it? I know the other way around is bad due to the acid in the flux, but i've never heard if this is bad. What do should I do?
