Soldering pipes

In reply to New water heater - how close can I sweat the joints by Mark Krzyszkowski on January 5th, 1999 06:17 PM [Go to top of thread]

Dear Mark: I personally wouldn't solder closer than about 7-8ins unless you wrap the inlet & outlet with a wet rag. How about just using those new-fangled things called flexes,(copper or stainless) which have 3/4 female pipe threads on each end or 3/4 thread in one end and 3/4 sweat on the other; piece of cake. Happy heating & Happy New Year. The waterguysers are watching & waiting 800 851 9891.
