    Willy have you ever considered taking a lengthy holiday from around here, every time you post it causes nothing but you know what trouble,

    I’ll watch this thread with interest in how it turns into a you know what debate :p:p

    Watch out for dents and other damage to new copper pipe!
    I don’t want new pipe to install that is flawed.

    No use bending a pipe where a slight dent happens to be - as the dent can cause the pipe to crease.

    A lot of Screwfix staff have no clue how to handle copper pipes.
    And to be completely fair, some of the staff in plumbing merchants are as bad.

    copper is a commodity,my well known traditional heat/plumb merchant purchases their copper pipe in mainland europe and its shipped monthly in an artic to their London warehouse.

    Every delivery has the exact same amount of copper pipe but the sales invoice varies due to the commodity price,often varies by £3k per delivery. so when the price is low they have daily deliveries :)

    screwfix and their associated sales outlets have the cash to support buying at commodity prices but maybe their buyers dont have the ballcocks to do that :rolleyes:


    Thanks for the information.
