Can you use copper pipe for propane plumbing?
Copper tubing is used for underground propane service lines but should be installed by a licensed propane company. See www.propane101.com/gasserviceline.htm for a better explanation.

K, L, M , DWV , ACR, Annealed , Drawn, TP, Dehydrated all dependent on the application at hand \n. \nsome countries go by class depending on the thickness of the copper pip…e. Class 0 being the thinnest of the classes, which can be used in general plumbing applications right through to Class 3 which is very thick and is used when laying in concrete, or when high water pressures are evident or when pipes have to be layed inside and expensive aritcles cannot be damaged due to burst pipes
Red Brass = 85 % copper /15 % zinc Yellow Brass = 60% Copper 40 % Zinc Copper TP is threadless pipe diameter Copper tubing Type K / L/ M So what is tyhe application and worki…ng pressure? BEST application would be Brass (RED) and brazed joints with TP fittings I would tend to agree but only if the brass has been DZR (dezinctified) treated, otherwise use copper. ONLY "Yellow BRASS" is subjected to dezinication as the 40% zinc causes piping failures as the pipe becomes more brittle over time
Because it lasts and is very versatile and can be used for a variety of plumbing applications with amazing results
Assuming it is 15mm. Buy 2 15mm couplers (compression, push fit, pre-soldered or end feed) and a length of 15mm copper pipe. Chop the copper pipe that needs replacing and conn…ect as necessary. If you need any more help just ask. Ans 2 - If you're not familiar working with copper pipe, then it's much easier to get a length of PEX and two 'Sharkbite' or similar push fittings. This generally gives you more flexibilty and allows coverage over areas of the copper pipe that look faulty ( greenish spots) This will cost about the same but is an easier and more reliable repair for the amateur.
Polyethylene and polybutylene are two common types of flexible tubing used in plumbing, and both are used in hot and cold water supplies in place of traditional copper lines.
NO !!!! Must be Galvanized pipe with threaded fittings or Copper piping with flare fittings. If there ever was a fire, the PVC pipe would burn & burst allowing the propane gas… to flow out and explode !!
That's what most people use. If a professional plumber ( one who actually had formal training) they would never use propane unless they are suicidal. 1- Propane is heavier… then air thus it pockets 2- Propane does not give the same heat as Acetylene 3- Acetylene is a lot safer . Yes one can solder with Propane and one can solder with Mapp and even solder piping with electric where the use of an open flame is not advisable . As long as the heat source is above the melting point of the alloy it should flow by capillary attraction
What valve?...on the torch? Open it up enough to play a good flame. If you are soldering on a valve, you need to take out the valve stem from the body unless you want to me…lt the seats. Opening the valve is not enough.
A long long time ago
schedule 40 soft copper.
I think it is coz it is cheeperr bruv! hopee it helpedd mann!
Yes, use schedule 40 soft copper with flared fittings for connecting copper to appliance gas is going to.
Because it is very durable and can be soldered to copper.
Copper pipe is used in residential plumbing because copper is a durable material, proving to be strong against damages and so forming irregular bends with copper means it stil…l remain stable. Essentially, copper is recyclable which is a good choice of material as it is environmental friendly.
