Vertical pipe support


Hello all. I installed some half inch copper piping for a stove pot filler. There is one run that is almost 5 feet vertical being supported by clamps on the pipes that branch off of it at each end. Is it necessary to also clamp the center? I'm just wondering if that is too much weight for the elbow joints to support. Thanks

Vertical pipe support


5 feet between clamps is fine--in case I misunderstood your description--add a photo if you can.

Are the eared flanges for the faucet well secured? (If that is the typical restaurant style faucet)
