Understanding the Variety of Copper Pipe Types

There are many different types of copper pipe, many specifically designed to meet various needs for water supply and plumbing applications. Our inventory stocks the most widely used copper pipe types, including:

Type K
Copper Pipe

This is the thickest and heaviest of the copper pipe types and is best-suited for main water lines and underground installations in water distribution, fire protection, oil, HVAC, and many other industrial applications. Type K is the most expensive and is identifiable by a green stamp.

Type L
Copper Pipe

Type L is slightly thinner than Type K and is commonly used for interior water supply lines. Available in rigid and flexible forms, it is the most common type of copper pipe with a wide range of industrial applications, as well as general plumbing and residential applications.

Type M
Copper Pipe

Type M is the thinnest and lightest of the three most common types of copper pipe and sees the most use in residential construction for cold water lines. Due to its light weight, this type of copper pipe is ill-suited for hot water.

Other Copper
Pipe Types

From ACR copper pipes used for HVAC and refrigeration systems to specially cleaned medical gas copper pipe to coiled and flexible tubing, copper pipe comes in many forms. Contact us to ask about additional types of copper pipe in our inventory.
