6mm copper tube

Post by jaroporter » Fri Mar 30, 2018 9:06 am

one for the gas engineers perhaps.. what's the deal with 6mm copper tube.. seems i can buy the stuff in rolls, but none of the usual plumbing places seem to sell fittings for it. is it only used for very specific purposes, with premade equipment?

just got a gas stove i haven't got an adapter for that uses it so was looking around for options

But i was looking at unequal tee for 15mm and 8mm pipe and was gettingbprices of 3 quid a unit. If you got the same unequal tee for 15 and 22 there 98p so when you do find a seller be sitting down

yeah i've looked in all the usual places. couplers aren't any help. i'm currently bodging something together but i was curious about the stuff. i'm also not convinced it isn't 1/4", which wouldn't be a problem if soldering but maybe with compression i dunno.
