I've not seen or read a lot about the Romans making or using copper tubing or pipes.
I'm sure that not 100% of the copper was used in bronze or used for jewelry.
Someone please enlighten me.
What would they have used it for? Domestic piping was made from lead or ceramics.

Or wood....  I cant think of a single example of a copper pipe...

Some of their valves and taps were made from copper alloys. This valve was apparently found in Pompeii.
