3/8 Copper Tube Longer Than 100 Ft?


I've been looking around for some longer lengths of copper tube. I can't seem to find anybody who sells a coil longer than 100'. For the project I have in mind that would be stretching it and I'd rather have more wiggle room. Does anyone have a supplier of regular 3/8 copper that could get it longer? I haven't found any on Google.

What's the project? Is there any reason why you can't solder/braze on the extra length?

With the exception of instrument copper tubing(available in 500' coils). I think you'll find that 100' is the max length its sold by.

You may be able to special order it from a factory/manufacturer though.

Are you sure you want to run 3/8" plumbing that far? There would be pressure problems at the far end.

They make the coils that long for convenience of manufacture and handling where it is still the intent that the tube will be cut into short lengths.
