When soldering, remember to apply heat to where that you want the solder to flow, and
then apply the solder to the part you've heated. The part being soldered will melt the
solder and draw the solder into the joint. Do not apply heat directly to the solder, as it will
drip and splatter.
9. Apply solder to fitting (2) at joint.
10. Allow joint to cool.
11. Clean cooled joint with sandpaper.
12. Inspect joint for thorough soldering. Solder should show as a thin silver colored ring around
circumference of joint.
13. If joint is insufficiently soldered, repeat steps 1 through 11.
14. If leaking continues, replace the entire section of pipe (1) or fitting (2).
