When it comes to renovating the old pipes at home in kitchen or the bathroom areas the task at times seems to be much complicated and have to be tackled skillfully. The first most important thing is to clean out all the excess water from the place and let the area dry up. Mostly when the plumber comes to mend the valves, fittings and pipes he closes the main water supply and drains water from the pipes.

Once the pipes and fittings are dried out they are ready for the soldering process, plumbers now start clearing the pipes and brush the caps from inside and outside to get the copper. Then taking the acid brush they coat the two surfaces with the medium coat of flux and place the cap over the end of the pipe.

The pipes can now solder, they can join together to close the leakages. Little heating is required to attach the solder to the joints which will fix the pipes easily. Once the solder is melted by the heat the pipes and fittings are joints together and the kitchen sink or bathroom pipes are ready to be used again.

It is important that the solder is melted properly and spread nicely in between the pipes and fittings which would give it strength to prevent water leakage in a longer run. The plumber usually cleans the excess solder and gives the pipes and fittings a new sparkling look.
