Repairs to barrel.... (steel pipe)

TechnicalPosted by Sebastian Tue, August 03, 2010 21:12:54

Did this today....... good luck finding anone else who does small barrel repairs.......

Right, first thing is that the bottom rhs pipe is free ended, but bent like a banana, almost an S shape, and its 1" off the floor. Above goes up to a swan neck, top rhs pipe is also free ended, and again, banana shaped. had to dismantle the whole thing, then replace the tee (was corroded badly) and rebuild. Tricky! Originaly i wanted to repipe in copper.... but its a heavy traffic area... and when i came to do the job I decided copper was out of the question.
