Can i use Bernzomatic WH0159 Universal Torch Extension Hose with this kit and will it lower Intensity with extension?
Asked by: oesco
No problem using the hose with this kit. It would be a lot easier with a trigger start head though.

What's the hottest working temperature that it puts out?

Asked by: mrgf78
Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We reached out to MFG for more information and below is their response. “ The flame temperature, in air, of propane is 3600 degrees F. However, your material will never get to this temperature. The temperature of your material is going to vary dependent on your material. "

5-Piece PK1001 Brass Pencil Flame Plumbing Torch Kit is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 27.

The 1.5 oz lead free solder and .5 oz of flux would have been enough for a small job. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because it did not come with the spark lighter so I will return it. It was easier to go home and get my propane, torch head and solder supplies. If it had come with 1.7 oz of flux and 4 oz of solder I would have kept the kit. If it had come with the spark lighter I would have kept the kit. A Bernzomatic kit always came with a spark lighter or a trigger start torch. I do not smoke so it was useless to me. As for would I recommend the kit the answer is without the spark lighter "NO". Spend a little more and get the tank with the "trigger start". It is worth the extra money.

It contained all of the components as advertised in the detail section. This was my first time sweating copper and I used the kit to replace a couple of old 1/2" copper elbows. I practiced soldering and un-soldering a couple of joints in the comfort of my garage after watching several online videos with tips and tricks for soldering. Other reviewers mentioned problems keeping the torch lit but I had no problems. The torch worked well. The flux worked well. The solder worked well. A professional plumber may have difference thoughts about this/these products based on his or her experience, but as a DIY homeowner I had a positive experience and will keep this kit handy for my next leak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from read review to light torch perfect for small job I needed to do a 1/2 inch T and had more than enough stuff in the kit. to light turn on propane slightly then hold match to bottom side of the tip of the torch it stays lit at every angle every time I Light it with one match every time. this is perfect for the small job I had and cost efficient since I will probably not need it very often

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser
Date published: 2017-04-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ--read my review to help ignite the torch (deviation from product instructions) I read some reviews and was skeptical at first, especially when people mentioned the torch wouldn't hold a flame. The trick to getting it to light is this: Ignite a long stick lighter and hold it at the end of the propane torch. Then, you only need to barely turn the propane knob to get the torch to light. You can then adjust the flame accordingly. If you turn on the propane first and then try to light it then yes, it will blow out the lighter flame and will not work correctly. I used this to solder some 1/2 inch copper pipes together and it performed as needed. I recommend this kit for small projects, for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Torch works well Used torch to replace a damaged 16" pipe section. Torch lit every time with striker and valve turned on very low. I kept the bottle below the valve as per instructions to not flood the valve and the flame never went out. Replaced pipe and no leaks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for 1/2" copper pipe If you are just soldering 1/2" copper pipe and fittings, this will do the job. It's kind of a pain to light the torch with separate spark or flame required. I used a wind resistant type lighter to light the torch and it worked well. If you are doing more than few joints or are soldering larger material, like a shower mixing valve, or larger pipe, spend the extra 20 to 30 bucks for a mapp gas (yellow bottle) torch with trigger igniter. It burns hotter and is way easier to use. I didn't really like the flux, so I ended up buying the H20 flux by Oatley, it didn't burn off as fast as the benzomatic flux that comes with this kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great for my small job and the price was right A lot of reviews talk about this not staying lit or not getting hot enough melt the solder. I think the one thing missing from this package is striker to light the torch. I picked one up for a few bucks after going home and realizing a match was not going to be a great way to light this thing. It took a few tries even with a striker but once it was going it stayed lit and was plenty hot enough to heat the pipe.
