I had to reroute a stubout through a wall as it did not correspond to a new
cabinet on the other side! I hung it in the wall through a brass hanger
screwed to a strap. I did not sweat the pipe to the hanger. I noticed some
minor movement through the hanger. probably no big deal. I tried to tack
some solder in the joint without flux, no luck! So I just swiped some flux
around the perimeter of that joint and got a small amount of solder in
there, or at least melted around there, with a glob hanging from the pipe!
It is holding. Is that sufficient? I don't want to have to go to the
trouble of taking the assembly apart just to sweat the pipe inside of the
What the hell are you talking about? It's a "pipe hanger," not a "pipe
sweat joint holder together thingy." The pipe just hangs on it.
I noticed a couple of responses from "DIYer" groups. It just reinforces
their reputation for being fountains of unfounded opinions. I even saw that
a woman offered advice! It's time to wake up pal.
