I installed a new shower valve as part of my bathroom remodel last night. It involved cutting out the existing copper pipes to remove the existing valve, soldering nipples to the threaded male adaptors, screwing the threaded ends into the new vave body, and coupling the other ends of the nipples to the existing pipe. For some reason I came up short on the last joint and only inserted 1/4" for the soldered connection. It was 11:00 and I wanted to be done and get the water on! Now I am having slackers remorse. Will this joint fail? Is there anything I can do retroactively to strengthen the joint? Any advice would help. Thanks!
