fitting lead to copper tube
Posted by John Gatti on February 20, 2002 at 15:48:55:


I'm renovating an old home and want to do it in stages. one floor at a time. I need to connect new copper tube to 100 year old lead. The lead pipe looks like a tree branch. In other words doesn't look threadable - can I connect it as if I'm putting two lead pipes together ? What type of solder or flux do i need ?

Thanks for your help
