What grit sandpaper? Thx

vipleather says:

You forgot to ream the cut pipe. This will tear up the fitting by turbulence and will create pin hole leaks years to come.

But why do you yell?

Ken K says:

Thank you for this clear, easy to understand video!

Rory Nelson says:

And then clean the joints with WD40 to keep the flux from corroding or turning all green

Dr. Ronald Cutburth says:

Very good. Thanks

Kyle says:

THANK YOU! You know how to make an instructional video. Efficient and sufficient at the same time. Subscribed. THANK YOU!

I thought you had to heat up the side of the pipe opposite to the solder, so that the solder gets drawn to hot part by capillary action, therefore coating the entire fitting evenly.

Tanner Yee says:

Thank you sir

First at all you clean pipe with dry cloth and you apply the flux or dolder paste and fit togheder , when everithing is fited clean exces of flux , and start to heat pipe 4 cm front and back to calibrate the temperature , and start from the bottom to heat the ellbow and pipe … after with weet chlote colling slowly

rick river says:

Wow, great instruction video. I thank you from a guy that knows nothing in plumbing. I will practice until i get it right with your advises. Thank You again.

Adrian Ellis says:

Good video

Colin Nicol says:

Nice job on the demonstration. As a plumbing lecturer in the UK we haven’t used this method for over 10 years. All our capillary fittings come with a potable ie non toxic solder integral ring. The fitting and pipe requires no cleaning as our fluxes are self cleaning when heat is applied. We have two fittings, one cheaper ring which has lead content and is only used on heating systems etc. our more expensive ones have a lead free content for potable drinking water. The system you demonstrated is widely banned as unscrupulous plumbers were buying the cheaper lead solder to save on costs which is why all our integral fittings have a special potable stamp on them, thus making them instantly recognizable as safe for drinking water.

I’ll join the mob and say WELL DONE, I needed a refresher but this was perfect for a beginner without all the extra filler dialog in most videos. Now for a video on how to do this inside my wall without “burning the house down”… ( this is a joke, ass-bags can save your comments)

Gillian De Lear says:

Great video Thanks!

Why are all you people that think you know so much about soldering copper pipe watching a video how to solder copper pipe.

john james says:

Good video and I see you had a little plumbers war down there..As a retired electrician I asked one of the plumbers I used to work with, what are some of the most important things one should know about plumbing… He told me– 1) Don’t hurry,worry or go home tired..2) shit don’t run up hill and 3) paydays on Friday..Good luck with your vids…One other thing I thought of..whenever you’re doing something like your plumbing videos, where there is a trade involved, you’ll never get it right..Ask any tradesman like those plumbers arguing down below, how to do “it right” and they’ll tell you they are the only ones who knows how to do it right and everybody else is a moron…LMAO..

Alfred Price says:

FLUX!!! That’s why it didn’t work. Thanx man!

Andy says:

It is nice to see someone solder plumbing. It seems now a days everyone want to take a short cut and use those shark bits. Solder for the long haul.

rlee crossett says:

thank you for some good info

Johnny Casteel says:

Good pro tips.

Chris Hessey says:

Nice thanks I’ll try it.

THANK YOU! You saved us hundreds!

Great video

I have just soldered copper pipe in my house, due to an emergency, for the first time ever. I’ve taken a welding class and I’ve braised things before but the damn pipes are round and it’s weird. One thing you might need to explain is to not overheat the joint. I kept doing that and screwing it up until I realized holding the flame a little bit back was worth the extra time. Also, before you go do anything on your home, practice maybe five or six joints. As well, if you joint is in a really weird and bad spot, it’s OK to do parts of one side and then the other. It doesn’t take very much Sauter it all to coat the whole joint as long as those parts of the joint are hot enough.
…That would’ve helped me.

Thank you for the video, it did show me a lot. And I saved a ton of money and I also learned a thing I can use again.

Mark Cuthie says:

Nice work! Thank you.

Aman A says:

Did you put flux in the fitting?

Jason Stushek says:

Clean, straight to the point.

Mike m5959 says:

Stellar video dude!!!

Theresa Smith says:

wonderful presentation.  thank you!

Mark Shaw says:

Excellent !

Alan Yee says:

Does a water line to the garden be considered a potable water line?


I ream or use a rat tail file to remove the internal ridge the pipe cutter leaves. Smooths water flow and helps to prevent high pitched cavitation or whistling.
