  • New Government Pipe Manufacturing and Laying Guidelines:

    1) All pipe shall be made of a long hole, surrounded by metal or plastic circumferential to the hole.
    2) All pipe shall be hollow throughout the entire length - do not use holes of different length than the pipe.
    3) The I.D. of all pipe must not exceed the O.D. - otherwise the hole will be on the outside.
    4) All pipe is to be supplied with nothing in the hole so that water, steam or other stuff can be put inside at a later date.
    5) All pipe should be supplied without rust - this can be applied at the job site.
    N.B. Some Vendors are now able to supply pre-rusted pipe. If available in your area, this product is recommended as it will save a lot of time on the job site.
    6) All pipe over 500 ft (153m) in length should have the words "long pipe" clearly labeled on each end, so the Contractor will know it is a long pipe.
    7) Pipe over 2 miles (3.2 km) in length must have the words "very long pipe" labeled in the middle, so the Contractor will not have to walk the entire length of the pipe to determine whether or not it is a long pipe or a very long pipe.
    8) All pipe over 6" (152 mm) in diameter must have the words "large pipe" labeled on it so the Contractor will not mistake it for small pipe.
    9) Flanges must be used on all pipe. Flanges must have holes for bolts separate from the working hole in the middle.
    10) When ordering 90, 45, or 30-degree elbows, be sure to specify right hand or left hand; otherwise you will end up going the wrong way.
    11) Be sure to specify level, uphill or downhill pipe. If you use downhill pipe for going uphill, the water will flow the wrong way.
    12) All couplings should have either right hand or left hand thread. Do not mix the threads - otherwise, as the coupling is being screwed on one pipe, it is unscrewed off the other.

    I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.
    It ain't just soot, it's paydirt.

            Anyone can plainly see that these rules are nothing more than Common Sense guidelines for the Manufacturer and Contractor to follow. Just like all the other Federal Regs!

              reminds me of when I hung around a bike repair and custom shop. some new kid would be sent out for a dozen wooden welding rods and a few cans of compression.

              I really appreciate this one: 3) The I.D. of all pipe must not exceed the O.D. - otherwise the hole will be on the outside
              In the never ending struggle to keep the water flowing.... The Poo Poo Cowboy rides again!!!
