Soldering valves
Posted by Donnie McFarden on October 08, 2001 at 15:05:54:
What is the secret to soldering a 3/4" valve to 3/4" copper pipe. The valve is a standard sweated fittings ball valve and the pipe is standard 3/4" rigid copper pipe. I've never really had any problems with pipe fittings, but trying to get this valve to seal with the pipe seems very difficult. I recently moved to a higher altitude (8,500') would this make any difference.
