Actually the soldering is weir but sometimes necesary usely many of the joints is by thermofussion so the pipes and jioint comes in PPR

You covered everything on how to fix this leak in short and interesting time, thank you!!!! I love how you explain things and the consequences of not following directions.

The best way is clean off all the flux of the pipe and the fitting doing it you will have no problem at all .

When you grab the pipe with the grips first wrap a piece of rubber around the pipe - a bit of old bicycle inner tube is very handy for this - and then you will not score and scratch the pipe.

I’m going to start practicing soldering as I want to add some shut off valves to a small bathroom. Does the joint fail immediately or can it take months or years to fail if you don’t solder it correctly?

Thanks. I've always wondered how you get that pipe that has been removed and is to big to fit back in to go in. The vice grips and banging seems like a great idea; though it did gouge the pipe pretty good.

Went to the school of hard knocks and made many mistakes. Thanks for your humble tutorial.

either the previous plumber didn't properly prep the pipe by not sanding or fluxing it all the way or he got a hair from the brush in the joint...it's happened to me many times before with the brush hairs.the sanding or steel brushing causes scratches for the solder to seep into and hold.this is the second reason why doing so is critical..it doesn't clean 100%, that's what the flux paste cleans it 100%.also i love to use the paste with the pre -tin in it..you get a better bond with it and can see when the fitting is hot enough by watching the tin melt into a matte finish.

Well I am not a professional plumber but I like to say that I am doing a good job. Even if it is a new or a repair joint I always use the same method :
-clean both parts using grey or red scotchbrite
- brush Rothenberger soldering paste on both fitting and pipe
-heat up the joint and apply only a bit of solder
I let it cool down for a minute and then apply a wet rag.
The soldering paste is grey and when it heats up it starts looking like solder. This is the time when you should apply the solder.
I hope it helps.

Very helpful for upcoming professionals. Enjoyed watching the video! One thing I do is use a dry rag when whipping the hot
Soldier of the pipe makes it smooth and clean to get right back into the fitting

by Lennox Costales 6 months ago

One thing that I've found for cleaning the inside of the fitting after separating it is to use a honing tool with rough stones. A quick pass will leave the pipe smooth and round and make it much easier to re-insert the the pipe into the fitting. I did this for a friend about 20 years ago, still tight and dry.

Also remember, old and dirty flux and oily fingerprints are real culprits too!! Plumb on😎

by Fred Grenz 2 months ago

I must have missed it but when you started hitting the locking pliers with the hammer,(),who or what was holding the torch?
Very seldom does a surface happen to be available for this to place a torch on,or have a 3rd arm.Wish I could grow a 3rd arm.

SO good of you to post these clips.
Brilliant.
Really building my confidence to do the pipework at my father’s on Monday!
My Plumber let us down 😱
The kitchen fitter is coming on Tuesday for 5 days, so I am now going to have to:
- move the mains stopcock 2ft to the right
- move external tap pipe 3 ft to left (installing compression valve)
- extend cold water pipe feed to boiler - extend pipe 3 ft to right, install compression valve near mains stopcock
- move taps over 2 feet (install compression joints with hot/cold taps)
- install compression joints to the washing machine

Slightly over optimistic for a first attempt, but hey ho.🤞🏼

What happens when you get a fitting that wont solider! Everything cleaned sanded. Maybe the brass fitting bent?
