In response to Re: RE: Can too much solder be a bad thing?
: Hello all love the site, my question is as a beginner at soldering copper I may at times use too much solder, I can see the solder on some joints on the inside of the fitting kinda like pooling indicating I put a lot in, no leaks but are there any complications? I'm not wanting any leaks and think too much can't hurt????

My motto is better too much then not enough.I usually run the solder around the joint till it drips 1 or 2 times then I stop. Knock on wood,I haven't had a solder leak in quite a long time
