Answer: 
No. This is not used for plumbing purposes. To solder plumbing you would use a torch, and even then it should be hotter then propane, such as a MAPP torch. If you're not experienced with soldering plumbing joints you'd be well advised to call a professional and have them do the job, or consider using a compression fitting to repair it.

Answer: 
No, you can solder copper pipe, but you will at least need a propane torch to do it with. This won't get the pipe hot enough to melt the solder. The pipe has to be that hot for it to work correctly. Been doing it for years now.

Answer: 
Hi Stefa,
A soldiering iron does not melt metal, it melts solider. The solider fills the gap or hole. With this in mind you may be able to use solider to stop the leak. It works best on copper pipe.

Answer: 
a 12 gauge extension cord because a 14 gauge is too small it will not carry the voltage and you will kill the soldering gun in short time

Home Depot sells Landscape wire . I use 16 gauge for my application.Check with a Home depot salesperson for the proper gauge for your application.It depends on the length of your run and how many watts you will be feeding on each run.

The same soldering gun as used in my childhood -- my Dad built a Heath Kit Stereo System and I helped as well did other soldering tasks over the years. What I like about the gun it's on/off ability unlike other soldering irons that you have to plug in and wait on that stay hot until you unplug them and then cool off. This gun gets soldering hot very quickly once the trigger is depressed and is easy to set down such that it won't burn anything but watch out if you have never used one -- read the directions and do your how-to research as soldering guns and irons are skin melting hot and unforgiving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soldering Iron I had a compact soldering iron but it just couldn't stand up to constant use and finally failed. I shopped around and found this unit. As a bonus it comes in a study storage case, something I always appreciate. For the tool itself it heats up almost instantly so no need to have it heating all the time. It also cools rather quickly. I have had no issues with it other than the first tip didn't last very long but perhaps I didn't do something correctly or I need the medium I see on the internet to clean the tip. Replacements are available, I now have a couple, but they are somewhat pricey. Overall I am very happy with the tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soldering gun vs soldering iron Good for small, quick jobs (like wires). The tips are too small to "store up" a lot of heat for big things (like sheet metal). The instructions say to use the gun for no more than 1 minute at a time, then you must let it cool for 4 minutes (must be a transformer inside that would overheat). For larger jobs you should get a conventional iron with a large tip (1/4" or bigger) that can stay hot. For my project, a 50W continuous duty soldering iron did better than the 140W gun. An odd thing about this gun is the 2-stage heat: pull the trigger half way and you get 140W; pull it to the next step for the 100W. I would've thought it the other way-- pull the trigger a little for a little heat (100W), and then pull it more for more heat (140W).
