Answer

Per Oatey: How do I flush flux out of my water lines? You will start off by getting a five gallon bucket and small electric pump with two washing machine hoses. Mix 1-one pound box of TSP (Tri-Sodium Phosphate), 16 ounces (2 cups) of bleach and hot water in the five gallon bucket. Drain enough water from your system to allow this mixture to be pumped into the water lines, and circulate throughout the system for one hour. The best location for hose connections is the hot and cold washing machine valves. Drain the system completely and repeat this process again. After the second application, you will want to flush the system out through each fixture for at least 15 minutes.

Worked Like a Charm!!!
Installed a new hose bibb and I was looking for a smaller size of solder. Found this one at my Queen Creek, AZ Home Depot. A gentleman advised me to get this one since a had a small job to accomplish. Got my Bernzomatic torch kit along with this solder wire and installed a new hose bibb in under 10 minutes. I'm starting to like Bernzomatic products...I would recommend this product to anyone doing a small plumbing job...I still have some left for a future plumbing job..sweeeet!!
