Options for supporting this copper pipe


I want to make this ceiling in basement level with the floor joists. Can I use plumbers tape to support the pipes?

Thanks,
Bryan

I wouldn't use any kind of tape, If it is 1" copper they sell nail clips at plumbing supply stores or maybe even Lowes, They sell them with nails already included, there easy fast and cheap.

Make sure you don't change the pitch of any drain pipes when trying to get them above the joist level or your drains will not be drains.

Thank you both. For the drain pipe I am going to nail in trimmers and blocks to support it. But the copper supply pipe is level with the bottom of the joists. I want to remove those spans of 2x4s.

You can run some nailers between the joists above the pipe and use one of the hangers in this link http://www.warwickhanger.com/catalog...copper-tubing/

Don,

Should I run a 2x4 parallel to the wall there, or can I nail in blocking perpendicular to the wall (nailed to the wall and the joist there)?

Thanks,
Bryan

You should run a 2x4 parrallel to the wall. You just set it half way on top of the top plate of the wall and nail to the top plate. That will leave you 1 3/4" or so all the way along the wall to attach the drywall to.

yes you can plumber tape, it is band iron, or (Strapping) you can use it on pvc, must turn it on the pipe once then tie it to the joist every 4 feet

Oh, I use strapping all the time especially for PVC, never heard it called "tape". Learn something new everyday!
