Making strong, leak-free, correctly-angled pipe joints - how?
I'm a newbie to plumbing. I've installed chimney liners, fixed faucets, and cleared drain traps. But redoing the piping (it's all 1/4" brass) for my boiler's pressure sensing hardware (Pressuretrol and gauge) has me stumped.
When working with combinations of angled pipes, tees, elbows, pigtails, etc. How in the world do you get strong, leak-free joints AND have all the angled pieces coming off at the correct angle? It's been a real crapshoot for me so far.
