DWV pipe?

DWV pipe?

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R ... reId=10051 is this good stuff? I mean $10 is cheap. I just hope it would fit regular pipe fittings.

Drain Waste Vent. Thinner walled but still uses the same fittings.

The Copper Tube Handbook is a very valuable reference. I have learned a ton from it.

You can find good prices on copper fittings on eBay too if you look around for a while. Many of mine were cheaper (including shipping) on eBay than buying them locally.

The reason I ask is I don't like the way my Bokakob is right now. I had two pieces of 2 inch type l. One was 24 inches that I used for the packing side, and the other was 16 inches which I used for the slant plates and condenser side. I would like to make the upper tube longer so I can get more than 22 inches of packing into it.

If your wanting to extend the packed section wouldn't you want to extend the bottom part not the top part?

It will work for what you want. :8)

Is like to make it two piece for easier transport and storage. And I'd like to redo my crappy solder job on the slant plates.
