Has the solder issue been resolved?

Many users complain of loose fit and poor solder flow. Sounds like ID of solder cup too large so capillary space too large so capillary force not sufficient to draw in molten solder. Has this been resolved?
Asked by: Nick
The issue has been determined to be related to the lead-free brass alloys being a challenge because of their lower thermal conductivity. Installers should first focus on adequately preheating the tube to soldering temperature. Once appropriate preheat has been applied to the tube, move the flame back onto the fitting/component surface to the base of the fitting cup. Preheating of the fitting is most effective if the torch is directed from the back of the fitting cup to the face of the solder cup. Now that appropriate preheating has been accomplished, choose a spot on the joint to begin soldering. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Service M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.

3/4 in. Brass PEX Barb x Female Copper Sweat Adapter is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THOSE COMPLAINING JUST PLAIN SUCK! These people shouldnt be soldering! These fittings are industry standard and if they leak, its either joint prep or heat control. Ive been a plumber for twenty years as much as i hate to see this stuff ruin the quality of plumbing systems, its not these fittings fault. They are industry standard. These types of systems give a home owner the illusion that its easy and they can do it themselves but the truth is that it still takes some basic mechanical ability

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Good - Won't Solder Similar to other reviewers here, I was unable to get solder to stick to these. Doesn't have anything to do with cleaning, prep, or materials (solder, flux, etc) as I used many other fittings in my system (with identical installation) and ONLY these gave me trouble. EVERYONE of these wouldn't work. Too bad. First Sharkbite product I've purchased which I'm not satisfied with. Interestingly enough, these have a larger ID than the other sweat fittings I purchased Most fittings have enough friction on the pipe to stay in place while you sweat them on. These things are just loose enough that they will slide off the pipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They're Brass This is complete garbage Anyone with a little experience with a propane torch can tell you, however, that soldering is never a one-size-fits-all operation, with different jobs requiring different techniques. In particular, soldering brass pipes can be more challenging than soldering copper. Read on to learn why and to learn some tips on how to successfully solder a brass fitting. Brass Fittings Require Higher Temperatures The basic process for joining brass or copper pipes is essentially the same: Clean the pipe ends that you intend to join until they are shiny and free from any burrs or debris. Next, brush on the plumbing flux and push the pipes together. Finally, heat up the fitting using a torch, while dripping liquid solder into the joint to create a secure and water-tight barrier. In 2011 they stopped producing MAPP and now they produce MAPP+ which is 400 degree cooler than MAPP Brass does not solder well, brass is cheaper than copper, right sharkbite manfacturer

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot get solder to stick I have had the same issue as many folks here. I had an issue with four of these where the solder would not stick. I am a homeowner but have done thousands of sweating copper pipes and never had an issue like this. The initial three I replaced with other ones and was able to complete. Last one just did yesterday wasting over two hours and a visit to HD was completed only by switching to the threaded SharkBite fitting to a copper threaded fitting that I was able to sweat in less than a minute. I am a bit concerned about the SharkBite fittings left that were soldered that they may start leaking one day, so will need to keep an eye or totally remove all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fitting -- no problem I have installed a couple of these 3/4 inch adapters recently, and a half dozen of the 1/2 inch size. I had no problem sweating them. I wire brushed both surfaces and used a good flux. Oatey No. 95 petroleum-based tinning flux worked great, but I also had good results with Oatey's H2O-95 water-based tinning flux. The latter is less forgiving and more difficult to use, but eliminates the insoluble sludge inside the pipe and is easier to clean up on the outside. I used Oatey Safe Flo lead free solder. I was able to test all of these sweat assemblies with air before installing in my house. All of them had no detectable air loss, 2 hrs at 100 psi. After installing in my house, I did not have one drop of water leak out either end of these adapters at roughly 60 psi. Great Results! I'm a DIY'er.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very snug It's hard to say which is at fault here, the fitting or the piping it was being soldered to, but the fitting wasn't very snug against the piping. This resulted in LOTS of solder going into the joint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two failed sweats in a row I had the same problem as others - did a job where I had to sweat about 20 connections... this was the only one that leaked. So I cut it out, bought another identical fitting, put it all together, and it leaked again! Cleaned everything, fluxed it, heated it up... solder melted but wouldn't really get sucked into the joint. I came on this website just to see if anyone else had this problem because I thought I was going crazy. Really irritating - I have spent hours on this one stupid connection now. I will not buy sharkbite fittings that have a sweat end again.

I was reluctant to purchase this item after reading a couple these reviews. I tried using the water base flux and with poor results. So, I Switched over to petroleum based flux and life was good again. I used MAPP Gas. Propane is a waste of time! I heard some friends and local plumbers using Acetylene (without oxygen) though I haven’t needed to go that route.
