Today we went to a construction site and noticed that there was a busted pipe leaking water, we did a leak test, water was everywhere. If we hadn’t caught that busted pipe in the new construction there could have been thousands on dollars in water damage.
So we got out our copper pipe, our elbows, couplings, and along with our soldering supplies and got started in repairing the leak. Copper pipe is what used to bring water into the house, we use copper pipe so that the metal from galvanized pipes doesn’t get into the water that we drink and use for cleaning and showering and washing our dishes. Galvanized pipe gets corroded over time so that’s why copper is preferred for bringing water into the house.
So after repairing the pipe in a very very tight space using a soldering torch, solder, and flux we did a leak test and there was no leak. When soldering with gas and solder its a very skilled procedure takes a lot of experience.
Many novice plumbers make a lot of mistakes working with a soldering torch, things can happen like burning down the house burning wood in insulation.
