What are the 3 grades of copper pipe used in plumbing?
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

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.
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
a black pipe can not be used in plumbing. Of course black pipe has many used in "plumbing" gas fitting and steam fitting Pneumatic lines are specified as black , Fire suppress…ion systems black pipe, gas piping , oil supply , steam and hydronics black pipe
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.
Brass Yellow and Red Brass , copper type T.P K, L ,M , DWV galvanized ,yalloy, black steel ,wrought iron ,cast iron NH ,service weight, XH various thermo plastics This questi…on deserves this answer.
Sandpaper, emery cloth or wire brushes sized for the different sizes.
A long long time ago
I think it is coz it is cheeperr bruv! hopee it helpedd mann!
Because it is very durable and can be soldered to copper.
Both. M used for hot water heat. L used for domestic hot and cold water.
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.
