  1. Anyone know where to get material to run hard pipes for my compressor? I need to plumb my garage for several outlets, and would like to use hard lines where possible.


  2. Bunnings, plumber shops?
  3. Hard lines are good, but the last 3 workshops I've worked in have only had the flex hose off 3phase 1200cfm compressors, never had a problem even with several T junctions and sockets.

    [ we did have a few off taps in the systems just in case a line ever popped, but never had to use em ]

    Flex hose is a fair bit cheaper and quicker to install as well.
  4. go hose. Hard lines when they fail often go spectacularly, depending upon the pressure in them.
  5. Ok guys, You've convinced me :wink:

    How do you handle the connections? Do you make some sort of bracket to solid-mount them, or just leave them flopping around?

    cheers - and thanks for saving me a bit of cesh :wink:
