Plumbing Fittings

I’m interested to know as many different companies that make polypipe and fittings to suit (e. G. Viega) that are suitable for Hot/cold water and natural gas. I have found many that are suitable for hot/cold but not for gas. I am installing plumbing into my own home and prefer to use as little copper piping as possible, its just easier to buy a roll and chop it to length than having huge long RIGDID lengths of copper tubing. *RIDGID. Do you know what I found? I Don’t know the building codes down under. I didn’t think you guys had plumbing. Here we Yanks use black iron piping for gas lines. Copper is mostly used only for flexible connections to a kitchen stove or dryer so they can be moved when you clean or for minor repairs. Any kind of plastic piping for gas is a dumb idea (sorry.) because of the danger of it being broken accidentally. I’m sure it will come as a big shock, but we Yanks don’t know everything. I’m guessing, so don’t put any faith in my opinion that copper lines would probably be okay. The best thing to do is check with your building codes, assuming you don’t live in the outback somewhere where you can do whatever you want.

32 years in this business has shown me a thing or two. Using sharkbite fittings is quite easy to do for the average home owner. . . . Please subscribe and have a . . .
