Good morning folks. I am new around here. I found this forum from F150forum.com. I am a homeowner who has a hubby that wants to do things on our own. Yesterday we ripped apart our shower/bath tub. It had tiles that were from the 50's and was leaking behind the tiles. We tore it all out (talk about great way to rid yourself of anger!!) and found out it was a cast irom tub. My hubby and I removed that after about an hour. We placed our new tub un and the pipes do not line up correctly. The ourlets are lower than the new tub. How easy is it to sweat pipes?? I have never done that and niether has my hubby. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
I would suggest you run down to one of the local home improvement stores and pick up a book on plumbing. I like the ones by Rex Cauldwell. Sweating copper is not hard, however it involves a few important steps well explained in most of the diy books.
