    The clamp is a brilliant idea! And there is nothing more frustrating than sweating a joint with a never ending trickle of water.

    In the past I have had to stuff a chunk of white bread in the pipe to stop the water. After you solder the pipe shut you have to take the filter screen of a faucet and wash the wet bread mess out of the pipe. It worked well!

    Might want to bypass a water softener for this trick!

    old trick true…but SOMETIMES the bread gets stuck! Been there/done that.
