What kind of solder is used for copper pipe?

I don't know what type of solder I should use. It is dependent on the use of your pipe. If you're soldering drainage pipe you can use 50/50 solder, but if you're using it for drinking water you need the 95/6 type. Lead and other things can get into the water of the 50/50, but the other doesn't.
