        Copper epoxy won't work, I tried it long ago, bad news.

         

        I don't know where you are located but I've had good luck with these sealants, www.PPE.com and search for 7290 or maybe the link below will work.

        I've used it on many joints and never soldered them. I've even used them to glue sanitary stainless fittings into the end of the copper pipes and never had a leak.

          Its an older style 2" x 49" copper, twin-valved reflux ontop of a beer keg.

          Well thanks Fred, I've got one more trick up my sleeve to get mine watertight.  I recently saw that they've come out with a copper epoxy that will glue pipes together.  Its non-toxic and should do the trick.  What kind of still do you have?

          Don't. I'll help you get yours running; I built mine. Jus say when.   If that fails, you can buy mine.

          After much deliberation and much patchwork I've decided to purchase a reflux tower instead of limping mine along. I thought I was pretty good at soldering copper but after three tries I still have more than one leak and I'm over it. Does anyone have a recommendation as where to purchase a decent reflux still for less than 500$? Thanks!

          Do you know what the major problem is with copper epoxy for this application? How long ago did you try it?
