    Copper Pipe????

    Hi,
    Does anyone know of a copper pipe supplier in the Chiang Mai region?

    I am after some 2", 1.5", 1" and 0.5" lengths.

    Also, if they supply reducers "T" s etc.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Any air-con shop should know where to buy it.

    Pipe

    Are you using this for water?? drain or whatever? I had mine done with Syler pipe (for water) which is a steel pipe with a pvc insert..water doesn't touch the steel. Available at Home Pro and others, but you need to watch they use the syler fittings and pipe dope. I tried looking at copper but as pipe is buried in walls and AC copper is kinda thin for long term water use...Tested mine at 95 psi for 3 days..no leaks so covered up. No problems so far and normal pressure is 30 - 50 PSI. Just a suggestion.

    The people that supply air-con pipe also supply copper water pipes of various sizes.

    Gorrect including all union joints and T pieces.

    In Pattaya there is quite a good shop with a solid supply of copper pipes and fittings on Theprasit road not far from the Sukhumvit junction.

    Too bad none of the fokers can silver solder.

    Maybe to redeem themselves they could manage some basi brazing. I was thinking that if the tubing was not available, I could get some copper sheet and have it rolled into 2" or 3" tubes then simply brazed, surely they can do this kind of work. I was looking at some air con units after you guys mentioned it, and to be honest, it looked pretty good!

    Off on an air con recon tomorrow, if I get lucky I'll let you know.

    Thanks again for the advice.

    Tin solder is good enough and a breeze to do. I could have tried for silver but did not see the need. All fine 20 years on.
