A: Hi John, this was calculated using several variables: Inner Diameter, Outer Diameter, velocity, temperature and pressure. This flow rate of 16.6 GPM is based on a 3/4-in pipe transporting water at 72-degrees Fahrenheit. This can change based on the medium being transported as well as temperature and pressure. We hope this helps with your project.
A: This is black iron pipe and will begin rusting immediately on contact with water. Best to stick with Copper pipe or one of the approved plastic solutions
A: Hi Ron, we recommend using alternative piping methods for water applications as water will begin oxidizing upon contact. If you check local plumbing code, you should be able to identify several alternative project materials for your need. We hope this helps with your project.
A: Pretty sure this would rust completely shut in no time.
A: Hi Jim, for this type of application we recommend checking local codes for recommended materials & installation guides. We hope this helps with your purchase.
A: It is refereed to as "black pipe" and it is for gas line plumbing in crawl spaces, walls and attics. The pipe is very stout and I have used it for many different applications and all requiring strong tube of pipe.
A: I used this pipe as a "flip bar" for a swing set. Works great & doesn't bow
A: This is pretty stiff. A cinder block on a 48in pipe won't deflect it much. I use them for furniture clamps (HD sells the clamp kits if you are interested)
A: I would use a solid pipe, could bow over time, and depends on height of hanging cinder block
