Pipe sweating advice
Posted by Fred on July 26, 2001 at 12:51:52:
I'm replacing some old galvanized pipe in my home with copper. Yesterday I was sweating some sub-assemblies on the workbench and everything went great. Today it seems like the solder wants to run right through the joint rather than stay in it. I can't think of anything I'm doing differently. Can anyone give some advice? I'm using 95/5 solder. I left the flux can open overnight, is that even a possibility of my trouble? Thanks for any help you can give.
