Copper pipe support


Hi there,

I've got a copper pipe loop assembly that comes out about 2 inches from the drywall, jogs up 90 degrees about 6 inches, across about 10 inches and then 90 degrees down 6 inches and back into the drywall. Is there a support mechanism that can be added to make sure that if anyone or something falls into the loop, something can protect the loop?

Thanks, Chris

Re: Copper pipe support


Build your self a shelf. Get a piece of 1x4 or 1x6 about three foot long.
Cut a couple of legs about 6" long. Cut legs into an Oge shape and attach.
Attach shelf to wall above pipe with a couple brass "L" brackets and and screws in narrow part of legs.

Re: Copper pipe support


Sorry for the delay. Here is a picture. It comes out of the wall, goes up, across, down and back into the wall. The space between the wall and the pipe at the top is about 2 inches. I would like to put something between the wall and the pipe to give it support from being pushed inward. Hope it makes sense...
