You don't need to wipe the solder booger off if you dont want to, it looks bad but it wont hurt anything. Yes, you do need to clean off the flux with at least some water. I usually take a moist rag and clean it while it's still hot but the solder is set so you wont mess up the joint. I used to wipe the excess solder off with a dry rag and still do at times but I try to use the end of my solder to grab the extra so I dont move everything and mess up the joint.

As for bending copper, that is fine depending on the copper. I would never bend M, it's too thin to begin with. We usually get mueller stream line which you can bend on a 2-5/8 radius just fine using a bender. Or if you have arms of steel you can do smaller sets.

Check out this winner who left his pair of pliers on the floor.

I was called to unclog a main line 7 months after the last plumber had done so....That was me!

They were waiting for their master. Good boy!

Same place this week end, Funny how they accepted the week end rate this time round, last time their main clogged the softener did a clean cycle and they ended up with poop water on the floor.

Anyway while I was there in the mech room, some electrical tubing for the drain pan and how about crooked hillbilly trap and vent?

Maybe they connected the flue to the sanitary vent system so they figured it should be trapped.

So here's something I found today while I was replacing a dishwasher.

I actually told the homeowner that i've seen more bizarre sink hookup stuff in California than I saw in Oregon. I literally never saw something this bad up there.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UDk...ew?usp=sharing

Now it's sort of a bad angle but you can see the cleanout plug right behind the dishwasher tee. That's in the top of a 2x2x 1-1/2 FIP abs tee. The tee is threaded onto the old sink dirty arm, and then obviously the rest of that abortion is supposed to somehow act as a vent.

I told her the reason we replace galvanized pipe, and the way they have that hooked up is a potential to dump wastewater back under the house.

I get it. Those dirty arms are a [email protected]^#^ to repipe. I've had to get the back of a 12" cabinet open so i could cut the old pipe out of the way before. It really really sucks. That's why we make the big bucks.

Realistically the better option if you really can't get to the vent pipe would have been to cap the dirty arm, and run a loop vent back to the existing drain where it comes through the floor under the house.

Honestly, i'd turn my nose up even less at a mechanical vent than this garbage.

They can't afford for me to fix that right now, so I guess i'll probably get a call when the crawlspace starts smelling horrible.
