Copper Fittings With Solder Video
There has been some changes in the process of soldering copper pipe and copper pipe fittings. Normally, you need some solder, soldering paste, sandpaper to clean the copper tubing, and a wire brush to clean the inside of the pipe. But, the solder is the most important component.
The new copper fittings eliminate the need for that roll of solder. They have the solder built-in the fitting! There is a small ring in the fitting where the solder is located. Just clean up the inside of the fitting and use the sandpaper to clean the outside of the pipe. Then apply the flux to both pieces, slide them together and apply the heat. When you see the solder coming out of the fitting, you are done. It's just that easy.
