Well looky here it's my first post. I've read over y'alls writings and i do enjoy seeing a bunch of people that know what they are talking about in a plumbing forum. I work for one of those large conglomerate plumbing/sewer and drain companies. Guess who? [img]smile.gif[/img] I do mostly plumbing and i would like to pose a question about sweating pipes when you can't seem to get all the water out of them. I typically use a MAPP gas can with an extension hose turbo torch head, and regular Oatey solder and flux. Excluding jet sweat kits which i think are too expensive, what have y'all used to stop that water and get the joint sweated? Second question: What are some of the funniest or most rediculous things you've heard of people using that didn't work? Third question: Has anyone successfully made their own jet sweats out of some all-thread or the likes of which?
