Many individuals wait till they develop some major trouble before dealing with a plumber. When it relates to emergencies, are you truly going to appropriately vet the plumber you contact? Nope.

One word and note of caution. One of the most crucial factors in sweat-soldering is making sure that the pipes and fittings are completly and fully dry. If there is any residual moisture. This moisture will turn to steam when the pipes are heated, and the end result will be a weak or even leaking joint. The build up of trapped steam in a copper plumbing, furnace or hot water heater pipe could actually cause an explosion. Therefore, before you actually start putting the pieces together, make 100percent perfectly sure that no moisture is lurking anywhere. If you are soldering on parts of the plumbing system or systems drain the pipes and leave the faucets open so that steam buildup can escape and run off.
