If you have ever attempted doing your own plumbing, you have likely run into issues. These mistakes can be costly and time-consuming to fix. This is why many people contact professional plumbing services. However, you can avoid beginner mistakes with the right knowledge.
In this video, you will learn about the most common plumbing mistakes and how to avoid them.
The first mistake people often make is not soldering copper joints entirely. They must all be soldered in quick succession. Otherwise, soldering one joint may cause another to melt. You will also need to remove the flux which is an acid that can damage the piping if not cleaned up. However, if you have already made this mistake, it is not too late. You can still fix the pipe. You may just need to clean the pipe and redo the soldering process. This time, make sure to take a wet rag and tie it around the other joints to keep them from melting. You will also need to add more flux. With these tips, you should be well on your way to soldering the correct way. Even if you mess up, you now know how to fix the issue.
