Is this a good brand of solder and flux?

I recently bought 'Oatey' brand 'safe flo' solder and H020 water soluble tinning flux, from good ole home depo.

Is this a reasonably good brand of solder and flux? I've done some small soldering work with it already. Is there any reason to be picky about the brand and type?

The solder meets astem b-32. The flux meets astm b-813 which I think means it can be flushed away with water easily.

Oatey is well known for making good products. I personally don't like the water soluble flux, and as long as I can get #5, I will keep using it.
