I recall seeing a home improvement show that used a sort of a sleeve that should
be used when drilling copper pipes through
the wood framing to prevent squeaks but I can't find them . The idea is to frill
the hole slightly bigger , install this
sleeve and then slide the copper pipe through . It prevents the copper from
rubbing against the wood . If I can't find them I
was going to squirt some foam in a can around the hole to keep the pipe from
touching the wood . Any ideas where I can find
this product would be appreciated .
I know a hydronic heating guy who takes two hole plastic straps made for
copper pipe and cuts the nailing ears off, so he ends up with a split
plastic sleeve. He then inserts this into the hole in the stud in the way
should be used when drilling copper pipes through
frill the hole slightly bigger , install this
from rubbing against the wood . If I can't find them I
from touching the wood . Any ideas where I can find
they first came out by LSP (think thats right)in a yellow cream color,
they made the bushings for 1/2" & 3/4", wrap around flat and wrap
around side mount.
They work great. I think Oaty also makes them now in a gray color. For
the bushings you'd drill a 1-3/8" hole then insert the bushing around
the pipe. If you do find and use them on hydronic heating don't forget
to leave room for expansion of the copper. (leave the ends free at the
change of direction for movement)
