    Actually that’s pretty much the phonetic spelling. The dude is quoting solder specs, I think he knows how to pronounce it.

  10. TheOldkid888 says:

    It is just a matter of heating the pipe joint, applying the solder on top and let it run around. Take your time and you will ahve no problems. good luck and have a good day

  11. Invisiblepanda says:

    @TheOldkid888 should i just apply the solder to the top and let it bead to the bottom or should i walk it around?

  18. 111diemaker says:

    what a hack

  19. MrJANTJE123 says:

    @IiMiDDL3TONiI no start at the bottom cuz heat rises up into the joint and what you didn’t mention is that solder follows heat so you don’t need to heat the pipe so solder moves into the fitting

  20. MrJANTJE123 says:

    @joop1977 troll

  21. TheOldkid888 says:

    WOW!….Very hard to watch. I have been at this for over 30 years and that wasn’t pretty. When applying heat it is to be placed on the bottom of the fitting as heat rises.Depending on the size of the pipe to be soldered,but most homeowners would have 1/2 and 3/4 size pipe in their home.Apply the heat to the bottom and then place the solder on top.There is no need to wipe the soldering paste (flux) off before you begin. Take a damp cloth and remove the flux once the joint has cooled. G.L.

    The worst soldering technique ever !!!
    Why not apply heat at the 90deg fitting and start the solder from the top.
    and let the melted solder roll to the left and right.

    nooooooooooooooo,real plumbers never apply flux to the fitting!
