28mm stove connection to thermal store

Postby bellarby » Mon Dec 17, 2007 11:51 am

I am connecting a wood burning stove to my thermal store. The stove wil be be connected directly using 28mm copper pipe and will be gravity flow. Since its gravity, I want to reduce the pipe resistance. Therefore, I dont want to use 28mm elbows. I am struggling to find 28mm slow bends (compression). Can I use 28mm slow bends (solder type) with a stove? The only other option I can think of is to use a pipe bender but im struggling to get a 28mm pipe bender and one of the bends may be too tight. Any advice? (I tried to get hold of 45deg bends but no luck).

Solder fitting are suitable for any situation that uses hot water below boiling point.
