Should you replace your old copper plumbing in your swimming pool with PVC?
NO! Copper sulphate if used in sewer systems to remove roots. It is a deadly and toxic chemical. Why do you want to switch???? Ken copper sulphate is NOT an EPA approved… primaary santizer, it is only an algaecide (and not one of first choice at that!) Copper will stain pool surfaces and is what causes hair to turn green!
Teflon tape only, no joint compound. Two or three wraps is plenty.... Yes agreed, teflon tape will make it easier for repairs in the future
Slightly under $280,000 NOT including filing fees plus TAX unless it is performed under capitol improvement NOT including wall and floor repairs
Assuming we are not talking about a vinyl pool. The PVC strip above the tile, below the coping is there to form a seal. It's porpous is to keep water from seeping behind the b…ond beam and into the ground beneath the deck. Over time it will get brittle and break. It can only be replaced by removing the coping. You can repair it by trimming it back and replace it with a silicone caulk, or "Dec-O-Seal" (or similar)
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 wa…ste 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 also be… used for water lines.
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.
I have a swimming pool and is heated it has just been replaced with copper pipe I am worried about the chlorine water going through copper pipe and into the pool should i be worried about a reaction?
The only negative reaction you might have is from pool water being unbalanced. When the pH is low the water is corrosive and may cause damage to copper pipes. There are no "re…actions" with chlorine.
jump in it
yes, just don't use too much I would not recommend using copper sulphate in a pool. It is an algaecide but it stains pools and is what causes hair to turn green. There are b…etter algaecides available. It is not a sanitizer and is not a substitute for chlorine or bromine.
Because it is NON Toxic
what i heard is that ,copper is the best thing to swimming pool's,is natural, health, environment friendly, less expensive than chlorine because you just add a little bit of p…roduct once every 2 weeks, people say you save on energy because the product is self-dispersing there is no need to run the pump for 8 hours, 3 hours a day is enough the problem is there is a lot of different products out there. "Not all black liquid is coke" so be careful , I'm using a product that is really good they sell it in this web site www.goodbyechlorine.com ,what i learned is that every body who say bad things about copper is because they sell chlorine only, so they don't want you to know anything else.
If water freezes it expands. so if the water on your pipes turn to ice 0c then you are in danger of cracking pipes.
I need an assistance for the piping system for 4.5x9.0 mrectangular overflow swimming pool and balancing tank.
There are chemical chelating agents that can be used. These will hold the copper in suspension and prevent it from staining. Other products use clarifier type polymers to clum…p copper ions together so that they can be filtered out. Trace amounts of copper in pool water is beneficial and acts as an algaecide.
Poly vinyl chloride. -Very common for irrigation and drain pipes.
Why should you not replace a section of galvanized iron pipe with copper pipe when doing plumbing repairs?
Because you will then get a 'galvanic reaction'.
