In response to Re: Emery Cloth or Tube Cleaning Brush??
: Which works better for cleaning copper tube prior to sweating, emery cloth or those wire 'tube cleaning brushes'?? I'm new to sweating, and I want to do the best job possible, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Depends of the Diameter of the copper Im installing.

If I am installing 11/2" - 4" I copper I use strictly Emery cloth inside the fittings and out side the piping.

For 11/4 and less I use emery for the piping and wire brush inside the fittings.
