Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underground oil line pipe Great oil line at a great price. Saves having to buy the more expensive copper type.

Best to bury in conduit or sand?

Asked by: Joiner332
Definitely best to bury in conduit but importantly allow for 1% expansion at least in pipe length in service. If you want send me your email address I will send you info on Qual-Oil. paul.warren@pipelife.com

Hi, is the pipe 10mm internal or external diameter? If external what is the internal diameter? Many thanks.

Asked by: chris1979

Qual-Oil Pipe 10mm

Presumably ok for short runs above ground through conduit? Also what about contact with concrete?
Asked by: Wurly
No, Qual-Oil pipe is approved for below ground use only, even with conduit. Concrete will have no adverse direct effect on Qual-Oil pipe, but better to bury in conduit to allow for expansion / contraction, and importantly allow for 1% expansion / contraction on length, using expansion loops if necessary“.

it states that this pipe should only be used underground , but as the tank and fire valve are above ground do I need to add a length of copper pipe to it? Which defeats the purpose of running 1 complete length end to end without couplings!!!

Asked by: stressedengineer
Hi Stressedengineer, Thank you for your query. You are correct. Qual-Oil pipe is only for use below ground. This is due too fire regulation. I understand that this is a slight contradiction as most Oil tanks are manufactured in plastic. If it is our green oil line I would suggest you use a correct size brass compression connector with a copper insert for the green oil line and use a small cutting of copper pipe to connect to your oil tank and fire valve. I hope this answers your query. If you require further information, please don't hesitate to contact me. Regards, Michael Geary,
