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 expla…nation.
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
PPR pipe means Pipe made ofPolypropylene Random Copolymer (Polypropylene Random Copolymer type3). The raw material of PPR pipe is Polypropylene Random Copolymer(PPR-C). The pr…oduction of ppr pipe should comply with Din8077/8078standards. The PPR pipes designed for the distribution of hot andcold water. Generally speaking, PPR pipe includes belowapplication, features, and application.
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
Depending where the noise is coming from but normally this type of question relates to water hammer which is caused by pipes not being secured properly, make sure all piping o…n walls and in roof are secured down properly with pipe straps, pipe clips or pipe holders.
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.

There are lots of ways.. Simplest way - flexible coupling with appropriate connectors at either end, usually a compression joint or push-fit barbed connection of different si…zes for both pipes.
One is nitrogen cleaned to remove impurities also there is type K,L, M ,DWV and ACR which stands for air conditioning and refrigeration ...Type TP is not used any more as v…ery few people have the proper skills to install it
It stands for Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC). Typically used for somewhat corrosive media.
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.
will carbon steel pipe touching copper pipe cause electrolysis inplumbing situations using water.
