Questions & Answers


Why are the stores unable to stock 10foot pipe? Stores have been out of stock since November. Emp...

Asked by Doer March 3, 2021

Wish we had a good answer to this question but sadly don't. You'll need to continue to check with your local store.

Can this pipe be buried in the ground?

Asked by Charles April 16, 2020

CPVC pipe and fittings are typically used in the house for plumbing applications. I would think for anything you would want to bury it would be a different type of pipe. You should check your local codes or talk to someone at Home Depot for guidance.

Can I drink water out of this kind of pipe?

Asked by Rubio440 March 11, 2020

Yes, you can.

Would a 3/8 inch fiberglass rod fit inside this pipe

Asked by Scormxon June 2, 2019

The inside diameter of this pipe is 0.485", and 3/8"= 0.375". Therefore, anything 3/8" in diameter will fit inside it with 0.11" to spare.

Can this be used as the pipe for the tub faucet to connect to?

Asked by faucetleaking August 11, 2018

Yes, but check the tub valve. If it is a copper sweat fitting then you need to sweat copper in it. Not hard, but you would have to learn how to do that. If the tub valve is threaded then you have to buy the threaded ends for this pipe and glue them on with the yellow 1 part CPVC glue or the primer and orange glue and then screw them into the valve. Without knowing your situation or seeing a picture I can't help you very much. Shawano Guy

is this pipe for hot water?

Asked by CCLUNA June 13, 2018

Yes, just be careful what transition fittings you use to go to copper or galvanized steel transitions say at a water heater for example. I think they recommend the expensive stainless or brass/CPVC glue fitting for that use. Those are about $5-6 per fitting as opposed to the all CPVC fittings which are < $1. If the temp is less than 140 degrees F then I don't think there is as much concern with transition fittings.

Could someone clarify the maximum PSI at 73F? I want to use use this as a hot water pipe in a hom...

Asked by Seth September 4, 2017

CPVC is rated for hot water. 180 degrees I think is the top heat rating on the product. Read the side of the pipe the rating is right on it. There is a PSI rating at 73 degrees F and one at 180 degrees F.

How much weight can cpvc withstand?

Asked by DAC September 1, 2017

I would not put any load on it other than the pipe with water in it. You can look up the spacing requirement for pipe hangers in your state plumbing code. Mine is like every 3 feet for this sort of pipe without any additional load on the pipe. I would not hang anything from this pipe or any other active plumbing, aside from maybe well supported galvanized pipe. Also be careful of materials compatibility with this pipe. Computer cables, Romex wire, and spay foam insulation can all damage this pipe over time and so can petroleum products. It also needs room on both ends to expand especially for hot water applications. This pipe expands more than copper with water temperature changes. My application is a cold water application and I can hear the pipe move in the hangers when cold water from the well starts to run through it in the morning after it has heated up in the basement overnight.

is it available at home depo wentzville mo

I used some of this in my basement in an exposed area. I don't think I would put it in a wall. I also made a custom shower arm with it. I am probably flirting with disaster there, but if it breaks I know to be concerned about the basement plumbing I did at the same time. Read my 1 inch CPVC pipe review for details about how to carefully put this stuff together so it lasts and does not fail. I took some 8 year old generic CPVC out of my basement and it was rock solid. Hopefully the new stuff lasts for decades. I thought about PEX, but the special tools, expensive fittings and spaghetti like consistency of it turned me off. The CPVC runs like copper, straight and level. Maybe PEX is better, but this worked for me. All of my applications are cold hard water. The hot in my house is copper which is a great lifetime product if you can afford it and know how to sweat copper. I thought the shower arm was a real Picasso moment. We will see if it lasts.

Warning Charlotte Pipe 1/2 in. x 10 ft. CPVC SDR11 Flow Guard Gold Pipe, Ivory
Installed 2 years ago. Had to replace today due to extreme warping. Used an 8ft piece from hot water line to elbow going to dishwasher and kitchen sink. Line looked like an S when the dishwasher was running. Would not recommend for Hot Water App unless this was just a defect. Charlotte Pipe 1/2 in. x 10 ft. CPVC SDR11 Flow Guard Gold Pipe, Ivory

It worked well for me. I didn’t buy it to move water from one place to another. I was using a piece of rebar as a curtain rod however my wife was complaining that it would not run. I put the rebar thru the pipe and now works like a charm.

I actually used it to stiffen my pop up shade canopy. Water would collect in the slack spots until it collapsed. 2 or 3 times now. I used the pipe because of its bend ability and strength. It stretches the fabric tighter and yereaka no more collapses. True story, works great even where use is not normal.
