In response to Re: pressure on soldered pipe
The worst thing that normally happens is that the pressure causes the pipe to rub against the wood, and, if it is a hot water pipe, it can cause various types of noises as the pipe expands and contracts.

: I installed new 1/2" copper supply lines to a new bathroom and after soldering them had to put a slight amount of pressure/torque on one to get a nailer in place for putting the floor back on. Is putting pressure on these pipes, specifically the joints, something that will be problematic? It's not a significant amount.
