  • Cheap Chinese black iron pipe

    Running a few hundred feet of 2" screw pipe and can't believe how poor the chinese pipe and fittings are. A coupling, no, every coupling wobbles when you hand tighten it. Had difficulties getting the die on some of the pipe pieces (some seemed bigger than other pipe). I use a power pony.

    I prefer jobs where American pipe is specced.

    Just because it is not specified does not mean you have to support chi-com markets.

      Correct, but that's all the supply house had in stock.

        shoot, I've seen bowed 2" C.I. pipe from AB&I made right here in the USA. I'm also a fan of letting supply houses know I won't buy from them if they carry sub par material. Gotta check everything before installing it nowadays

          only 1 of the 4 supply house i go to stocks domestic threaded fittings. of course it's 2 to 3 times more money. yet they don't stock the threaded domestic pipe.

          they all stock domestic n.h., copper, plastic pipe and fittings.
