The difference between pipes and tubes is simply in the way it is sized.
PVC pipe for plumbing applications and galvanized steel pipe for instance, are measured in IPS (iron pipe size).Copper tube, CPVC, PeX and other tubing is measured nominally, which is basically an average diameter.
These sizing schemes allow for universal adaptation of transitional fittings.
For instance, 1/2" PeX tubing is the same size as 1/2" copper tubing.1/2" PVC on the other hand is not the same size as 1/2" tubing, and therefore requires either a threaded male or female adapter to connect them.
Tubing, in particular copper, comes in rigid hard tempered "joints" or soft tempered (annealed) rolls.PeX and CPVC tubing also comes in rigid "joints" or flexible rolls. The temper of the copper, that is whether it is a rigid "joint" or flexible roll, does not affect the sizing. The thicknesses of the water pipe and tube walls can vary.
Pipe wall thickness is denoted by various schedules or for large bore polyethylene pipe in the UK by the Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR), defined as the ratio of the pipe diameter to its wall thickness.
The same applies to pipe schedules.As a result, a slight increase in pressure losses is realized due to a decrease in flowpath as wall thickness is increased.
In other words, 1 foot of 1/2" L copper has slightly less volume than 1 foot of 1/2 M copper.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plumbing
If we want them to be carried out quickly and efficiently, it is, of course, call the appropriate service to take care of it, but even in this case, often you will need to purchase replacement parts.
Where can we find them? Shops hydraulic market is not lacking and often find many that offer us good prices and interesting discounts.
In this way we will avoid additional expenses, when we order the wrong part.
For installing the hydraulic system needed extensive knowledge and skills, so definitely not worth it to take up for yourself.If you decide to install such devices on their own, we should consider the risks of increased costs and failure in after everyone prefers to avoid..
