I am currently deployed, due to go home the end of Jan. I am excited and want to start making Bio this spring once I get settled in again and acquire all the parts.
My question is: Can I use copper pipe to plumb it instead of black pipe. My buddy is a plumber so I can get all the pipe for next to nothing. I thought copper would be neater with less chance of leaks. Or will the Bio have a reaction with the copper.
Thanks for all the info on this sight can’t wait to get home and get started.
You'll want to use black pipe. WVO will react with the cooper. It forms a green 'film slime' type material on the cooper. Don't know if this would hurt your reactor but in the WVO world some worry about this stuff making it's way into the IP.
By the way thanks for your service to our country. I assume your in the military from your deployed status
