Hi Lee, for this type of project we recommend checking local plumbing code prior to beginning. This copper tubing was designed for use with refrigeration applications. We hope this helps with your project.
Hi Martha, when connecting with a copper line you will need a fitting with a compression connection. Prior to starting your project we recommend checking local plumbing codes to ensure the right materials are present. We hope this helps with your purchase.
It can handle more than 150 degrees but the pressure rating will drop. Up to the rated temp it can handle the rated pressure.
Hi lftrbhind, we do not recommend this product and you should consult local codes. The codes in your area might make this type of connection illegal and when dealing with gas you should purchase items specifically made to transport gas. We hope this helps with your purchase.
This type of tubing is rated for pressures over 800 PSI, so it should be able to handle the flow either direction between the heat pump and the air handler, although its diameter is large enough to suggest it be used for the high temperature return to the heat pump. The main issue with using this tubing for one (or both) side(s) of the line pair is that it is not insulated. If you were to wrap it with closed cell pipe insulation, it should be suitable for this use. Please verify whether the code in your area requires a licensed professional to fill the system with refrigerant.
This tubing can be used for domestic hot water distribution through the walls or to an appliance, but it is a bit big for a dishwasher, and a bit small for a sink and a dishwasher. If you are thinking about using this tubing to run from the stop valve to the dishwasher itself, again, this tubing can do that duty. But using braided supply line (SKU #1001274429 for the kit) is often easier, because the hose is much more flexible.
I'm assuming that you are referring to Industrial Pipe Thread (IPT or just PT). Using a brass fitting (known as a reducer) which has compression fittings both sides could work, but HD doesn't list this fitting on HD.com. Alternately, depending on the temperatures and pressures in your application, you might use a "bite" connector (SKU # 1002429610) to join these tubes, or you could sweat (solder) them together using a coupler fitting (SKU #181957). The solder connection allows for higher pressures and temperatures.
I'd call my local LP utility/provider to be sure. I've only seen black iron pipe, coated aluminum (flex) tubing, or rubber tubing used to transport gas but haven't had any experience with larger LP gas tanks. While copper is easy to work with it's also easily damaged (kinked/cracked/dented) if handled improperly. Might be best to hand this off to a pro.
According to the listed product weight of 2.68 pounds for a 20 foot package, this tubing would be a little over 2 ounces per foot, but that might including the packaging, so it is far from exact. Sorry. This weight to length ratio is approximately the same for the 50 foot package, as well, so it might be only the copper.
Because this product is not rated with a "hardness", it won't pass inspection as an approved application when used for distribution of potable water. Also, its content of lead or residual phosphorus (from the copper purification process) is unknown, and so using it for drinking water is possibly unsafe. Unfortunately, we just don't know. Sorry.
