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. "

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I had no problems using this kit. 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did the job, good enough Nervous to buy product due to low ratings and complaints. In the end i had no major problems and the job got done. To light torch i lit match first then twisted guage very slowly until lit. Torch did go out a couple times. I found the key to keeping it lit was to keep flame no more 1 1/4 in and be patient in heating pipe. Finished 3 joints with no problems. For a small project it did the job. September 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever!!! Torch was useless from the gate it did not work. The flux was maybe 1/3 full...maybe. The flux brush shed hairs unbelievably bad, had to pick brush fibers out of the flux and parts being fluxed. This inferior product cost be MORE TIME and MONEY. The only benefit I got was the propane. The company needs new management because of poor quality control. July 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No Threads on Torch! There were no threads on the torch head to screw to the bottle. Obviously defective and will be returned. We had already cut and fit the pipes before finding out, so a major pain!! August 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hopeless I went through two boxes of matches to do a 5 minute job. Every time the torch was moved through the horizontal position it went out. Literally every 5 seconds! Spend the extra cash for a proper one. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a pro tool. Dont ever buy this product or you will never finish your plumbing job. The problem is in the solder. It is not made to join new and old copper pipes. My advice use acid core slder December 20, 2015
