After looking info on joining copper pipes I read thsi page:
It instructs to use silver solder to join copper pipes. Will the join be strong
Well, I guess so, since most of the water pipes already in existence
were soldered with regular lead based solder before it was eliminated
and silver solder is much stronger.
Silver solder doesn't melt at a temperature anywhere near hot enough to be
in danger of overheating the pipe ( unless someone is doing their soldering
VERY wrong to begin with)..we are talking low temperature silver solder
here, not silver brazing alloy!

I've done a bunch of soldering, flare, compression, etc.
This web page is very hard to understand. I've never used silver
solder for water copper fittings. As to being a "master plumber", he
sure writes miserable web sites.
