But yet no one has addressed the issue of oxidation of the pipes - heated water carries oxygen, and oxygen will combine with iron, steel or copper and oxidize - simple science. In time, wall thickness ...

I just pulled the Haynes gravity heat working drawings. Wright states to use "Type K Copper Tubing." I found this on the net about type K.

There are three series (plus DWV):

Every Wright Usonian house drawing, whether W.I. or copper, I’ve seen they always specify the pipes be imbedded in gravel and not in t ...

Wrought Iron appears to last longer and heat a little better because of the larger surface area. Most of the Eichler Homes in CA are copper. Whatever the material, it's not a very "eternal" ...
