Or refridgeration guys. Supposedly cheaper than plumbing supply places but I haven't got any quotes.

I use and recommend 3/8" copper, but there are many 1/2" chillers out there. At a guess I'd say 10m to be safe, others may have different opinions on length. If I was to build again tomorrow I'd use that much.

Cheers, JD

Try your local scrap dealer - Much cheaper than your plumbing supply shops - if they have any.

Mine would have set me back $10 if he had of charged me... :)

Down here in melbourne, the local markets often sell NEW rolls of copper. I picked up 18m of 3/8" for $40. Bunnings price was $ 119 from memory.

That was laverton markets for anyone whos interested.

Last time I bought a role of 3/8 was from refrigeration parts victoria for less than $50. Much cheaper than plumbing joints.
