    Pipes and tubing standards

    Here in Norway a serious problem of confusion regarding standards for pipes and tubes has surfaced.
    Since this must be an international problem, I clearify it here for you.

    1. All tubes and pipes must be produced from a long hole, encased in steel, concrete or synthetic materials - accurately centered around the hole.

    2. All tubes and pipes must have a hole spanning the full length of the tube/pipe. Remember that this hole should not be longer than the pipe/tube.

    3. The inner diameter must not be larger than the outer diameter of the pipe. In this case the hole will leak to the outside.

    4. All tubes/pipe must consist of nothing in the hole, so that water i.e. can run trough with ease.

    6. All tubes/pipes longer than 150 meters, must be marked "long tube/pipe" so that builders and other professionals may see that this is a long tube/pipe.

    7. All tubes/pipes with a diameter larger than 150cm must be marked "large tube", so that contractors do not accidentally use it as a small tube.

    8. When an order of a 90, 45, or 30 degree bend in the pipe/tube is ordered, one must specify if the bend should be to the right or to the left, to avoid laying the pipe in the wrong direction.
    Victory awaits the one, that has everything in order - luck we call it
    Defeat is an absolute consequense for the one that have neglected to do the necessary preparations - bad luck we call it
