Will heating the tee cause the soldered side to melt out? Oh and I should obviously disconnect the PVC fittings from the tee and not melt the bathtub too!

comment Wood trim and new gutters: Gutters first or paint first?
Following up on this popular question. I went with @Pauls suggestion that wrapping is the better choice. Wrapping provided a nice look with low long term maintenance. Sorry for the late accept!
