Well, I paid about $750 for the material. That included 9 sections of 7/8" X10' pipe, elbows, tee's, quick connect couplings, hanger brackets and a flex stainless braided vibration isolator. Basically, everything necessary to plumb the system with. It is rated to 232 p.s.i and delivers 88cfm. All you need is a tubing cutter to cut the pipes. The fittings quick connect. My old system was copper, silver soldered but when I built the new garage I re-did the whole system and ran air lines to the basement work shop as well. Took about 1/4 the time for 3 times more capacity.
Thanks for posting your opinion on the silver solder. I'll be moving my compressor into the future garage shop later this summer and was intending to pipe it in so that I have service in both the wood shop area and also out where the cars will be parked.
I saw the opinions on silver soldering and was wondering why one needed to go to that extent, for what amounts to be 150 to 175 psi.
