1. Nothing is wrong with it. It is simply hard to find copper that fits your darts because it does not come in uniform sizes. However, if it fits your needs, use it.

2. You really don't need to.

3. CPVC (Chlorinated PVC) is much tighter and normally used for springers. Also, it is a beige color, while PVC is white.

I'm repeating what Ubermensch said, but being a little more specific. CPVC even though it is marked 1/2" it has a smaller ID than 1/2" PVC which is normally larger than 1/2" so 1/2" CPVC is really 1/2".

Copper isn't popular because it's expensive, heavy, tarnishes easily, and is not receptive to adhesives.

The C in CPVC that people referred to here is Copper-pipe-size PVC pipe. It's not referring to the material "CPVC" which is actually Co-polymer PolyVinylChloride (which is usually gray in color).

NPT/NPS Plastic pipe sizes are based on the old Iron pipe size dimensions. Copper pipe sizes are different, so in order to save cost when running interior water lines (since copper is horribly expensive and continues to rise in value) many builders opt for using Copper-pipe-size PVC pipe instead.


I thought that CTS signified that the pipe used copper pipe dimensions?

Oh hell, whatever.

The amount of overlap in Plumbing standard abbreviations is mind-numbing.

With respect to Crayolas and barrel types, see the new thread here for more information.

Me, I use 1/2" PVC. It's extremely loose on stock micro darts, but it works for me. I don't do range tests, since "if it ain't fun, why do it" and I lack moving targets to ply my trade with... ;)
