Any pipe will go old time by time and they will not stay forever. Pipes like copper pipe will be worn out by time and someday (or you have), you will find your copper pipe leaks and need to be either replaced or fixed. The easiest way of course by replacing it, but of course you will spend extra cost for that. So, with the tight budget you have and the leaky copper pipe problem, fixing it is the wiser way. How? By soldering it. But you must be sure that the pipe is till good enough to be soldered by observing whether it is still in a decent condition and has no corrosion. Here below are the things related to the topic of soldering copper pipe. Keep reading for the detailed information.
Firstly you must ensure that the pipe you are going to work is dry as well a clean. The most important is it must be dry since water will ruin the soldering. After you are sure that the area you are going to work is clean as well as dry, get the flux applied to the end of the pipe where you start. Now that you have applied the flux, get the sleeve slide onto the pipe. Get it placed there securely. Next, get the pipe heated using torch until you melt the solder. You must get the right heat when doing this this part and you may need some practices before doing the real project. The heat must be quite hot but not too hot so you will get the maximum result.
Be careful when doing the project, since it can burn you anytime when you are not careful with things. Putting on some protectors will be wise thing to do. Good luck with your soldering project folks!
