If it ain't broke don't fix it
K, L, M , DWV , ACR, Annealed , Drawn, TP, Dehydrated all dependent on the application at hand some countries go by class depending on the thickness of the copper… pipe. 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
did you mean pcv? if you did mean pvc, then it depends if you want to use it for water or for waste. and if for water, how many bars of pressure will be in the pipe and …for waste is underground or not. unless these questions are answered the answer to this question is vast.
Schedule 40 Foam Core pipe can be used for DWV systems, and Schedule 40 pressure rated pipe (PW) should be used for water lines, and can also be used for DWV. CPVC can a…lso be used for water lines.
To seal and strengthen bonds/joinings.
You should make approx 20% - 40% on the selling of the brass piping as it can be reused
Because it lasts and is very versatile and can be used for a variety of plumbing applications with amazing results
copper has a natural antimicrobial property to it preventing bacterial growth. Also Copper pipe will not build up corrosion & choke off water flow as Steel pipe will. Copper P…iping is also stronger than PVC Pipe and will not crack or break when struck.
The trap outside a structure would be a Storm type where there is little possibly of freezing and it must be a deep seal type to prevent evaporation
Copper is the metal used for plumbing in houses, there are many reasons behind it 1. Copper is the main metal for electrical wiring compare with aluminium. 2. …Copper is an excellent conductor of electricity and heat. 3. Copper is resistant to corrosion and very unreactive. Copper is malleable which makes it an ideal material for gas pipes and water pipes. 4. Copper is below hydrogen in the reactivity series and therefore it does not react with water. 5. Copper lead compounds in water are toxic. It was used for plumbing in the past time. For more information visit at: alliedallcityinc.com
The short answer is:MILLIONS. "Most" plumbing supply houses are known by the generic term "Hardware Store". Sometimes one hardware store will have the necessary part, some…times the other. This becomes problematic when you are trying a "do-it-yourself" remedy and are limited to the "brand-specific" strategy. The yellow pages telephone (and now internet) directory are alphabetically arranged by services provided. So a quick thumbing through the pages will take you to "hardware stores". Then you would just visually scrolll down to a store with an address near you. Then you would call them, requesting the plumbing department, then requesting whether they have the particular part that you desire.
For domestic water, drain lines, heat lines.
Because it is pretty well indestructible, does not break down or rust.
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.
Copper is relatively light weight, hard to crack, and solders beautifully when attaching fittings. Steel is heavier, and cannot be soldered, so all fitting are t…hreaded. Both types of pipe material are getting fairly expensive, so many water pipes these days are made of polypropylene plastic. In fact, iron is only used for large size pipes . . . usually underground, but not always. Most modern underground pipes are made of PVC, or polyvinyl-chloride. ABS or acrylo-nitrile-butadiene-styrene is often used for non-pressure pipes like drainage pipes, for instance.
