Tubing has many benefits against piping:
- Pipe threading and welding is more difficult to disassemble and re-assemble.
- Piping requires skilled workers for welding and threading.
- Piping is more bulky.
- Tubing is quick to assemble with simple wrench make-up on tube fittings reducing overall cost of installation.
- Tubing is bendable and allows for lower presser drop with fewer connections; reduces costs with less fabricating manpower.
