Do the Yorkshire type fittings come loaded with lead free solder these days? The reason I am asking is that I am going to fit an additional radiator in my bungalow after getting an estimate of £400 I am of a mature age and was trained years ago as a gas fitter. I had a 12month course on all pipe fitting including steel and lead . I am more than capable of performing this task, although I never took up the profession for a living. I know the pipes run across where I want the new rad as I have detected heat under the carpet with an infrared thermometer when the central heating is on . ( We have a wooden suspended floor ) I have in the past always done my own plumbing but was thinking recently about this lead free issue I could use end feed fittings and use my own lead/tin solder and flux that I have used for years . If I do use the Yorkshire ( pre-loaded ) fitting I guess I should buy some lead free solder and flux as I like to add a little wipe of solder around the fitting after the pre-loaded solder appears . Does lead free and tin/lead mix ? I have just purchased a new, good quality blow lamp that will run on propane and MAP so should handle lead free solder that I understand need more heat.
