in the UPC code book it says its unacceptable without re-sanding and re-fluxing the joint, but I do it all the time, and everyone I know does it!
Today as a matter of fact, I met with the plumbing inspector at a job in Santa Monica CA.
he made me re-heat a soldered joint out of its socket so he can inspect it for full bore reaming.
after inspection,I re-heated the pipes so that they fit back into their 90’s and applied a little flux and a new bead of solder in front of him!…
First time in 10 years that I was actually made to perform this test!
The visual ream test is actually part of the sign off card in Santa Monica!
(first time working in that city!)
Thank God I had an extra $50 on me so he would sign me off!
