linear feet of water pipe insulation

Postby salg » Tue Jan 23, 2007 11:37 pm

If I have 3'' diameter pipe and 56' of pipe, how do I find out how much insulation I need in linear feet?

The distance of a line in feet is linear feet, so you need 56 feet of pipe insulation sized for 3" line pipe.

you take 56 feet of pipe and that is how much linear feet you will need, resulting in 56 feet. if you are not sure what to buy, go to your local Lowes and they carry 6 foot sections of foam pipe insulation that simply slips on. you need 56' feet of it or 10 pieces. Be sure to buy some duct tape and tape approximatly every 18 to 24 inches and where the pieces run into each other to hold it in place.
