sorry, this was an error on our part. the maximum flow rate for 1" CPVC pipe is approximately 15 gallons per minute. The Home Depot portal has been updated but may take a few days for it to cycle over to the website. thank you for bring this to our attention.
Hi Mama! This is a CTS CPVC piece of pipe and would require a similar fitting. You can look online using CPVC in the search bar or go through the departments portion of the website using Plumbing/Fittings and CPVC. if you have further issues you can call your local store for help.
If current lines are 3/4" CPVC, then it should work.
Home Depot offers multiple options when it comes to pipe. This particular piece is a 2ft length and is typically used in a repair situation. Your local store typically stocks ten foot lengths.
CPVC 3/4 inch pipe can also be bought in 10 ft. lengths at your local store.
Yes, but I would be using sunlight resistant grey plastic conduit or white pvc myself.
Yes. Home Depot instructions for installing a TPRV on a water heater say to use CPVC: https://www.homedepot.com/c/ah/pressure-relief-valve-installation/9ba683603be9fa5395fab909404dfcb

Not advisable. Check with local building inspector, but galvanized steel or PEX is likely a better choice: http://facilitymanagement.com/piping-material-plumbing/ "Galvanized pipes are typically used in the following applications: Water supply lines Outdoor applications Underground applications" https://apolloflow.org/faqs "Can I use PEX pipe outside? Yes. However, it MUST be protected from direct and indirect sunlight. PEX pipe will start to become brittle and crack with continued exposure to sunlight."
The discharge line from the T&P relief valve is generally the same size as the valve outlet. The water heater manufacturer's recommendations should be followed regarding T&P relief valve size, assembly and installation.
