I am curious as to the standard price of 3/4" type L Rigid Copper pipe
in 10 foot lengths. It seems the price varies from place to place and
also some places charge more for the thinner Type M than the thicker
Type L. I am in the southeast.
Thanks in advance,

I don't know about copper prices in your area, but if this
is in regard to your previous post about the water heater,
you should investigate using CPVC piping.

I have used cpvc before on mostly indoor projects so I am aware of it,
but I wanted to go with copper for this project. The reason I was asking
about the copper prices is that I thought I found a deal, but wanted to
make sure before I stocked up. After a number of phone calls to the
immediate area withing 30 miles, I realized $ for 3/4 x 10' Type "L"
was a pretty good deal. Other suppliers wanted over double that and one
place (a wholesale building supply) wanted $9.90 per piece. In a 20
foot length I could find it for $1.99 so in the end, I stocked up while
the going was good :)

Copper prices, like lumber, are shooting up for several reasons
including, but not limited to, a tanking dollar and supplies being
shuttled off to other parts of the world by the VP and his friends.
