For the people who aren't having any luck, ask the staff to check clearance racks. When I went in they only had full price items listed with stickers, but I mentioned that I had read online some copper tubing was on clearance at other stores. The guy went to the next isle over's clearance area and found some 60' 1/2" ID for 29$. There was no tag or anything, he had to check using the barcode and his HD app.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, or if this is even accurate, but the clearance might be on Mueller brand only. I can't remember if I had read that earlier in the thread, if the guy at HD mentioned it, or if I'm just making the memory up. I feel like I heard HD was switching suppliers so they were getting rid of old stock. Maybe that was just a theory, but it might be worth asking about that brand.

An employee at my local store laughed in my face when I asked about it. He said I was lied to and that they would never lower the price on copper for any reason ever. I told him I had seen photos of the discount stickers and he said maybe in other states, but definitely not around here. I looked and didn't see any sale prices on anything. Shame, I really could use a 50' chiller.

I went to one HD and took a picture of the 'clearance sticker' because they were out. I took the pic to a 2nd HD and the lady didn't believe me. She looked it up anyway and sure enough, they had one left. She said to me "I can scrap it and make money."

Anyway, I'm betting the rep you spoke to was just like all the others and just isn't aware.

I found the 1/2" i.d. x 60' for $35 in the Fort Worth area. They also had the 3/4" x 60' for $80. Both of those were 75% off. I did not see any others on sale, and I had to price check the 1/2" i.d. since it said it was $90. May run by another home depot today and check.

I've seen this thread for what, two weeks plus? I keep forgetting to swing by the local HD (Grafton, WI) to see if they've got any. Tonight I remembered to stop in, thinking there's no way, no way there'd be any left, if there were even any to begin with.

I look. Hmm, no such animal. Not even a place on the shelf for it along with all the other copper tubing. I'll ask someone because, why not, right?

So I get someone. Tell him what I'm looking for. He tells me I'm crazy, they'd never sell that much copper pipe for that cheap. But he gets a ladder and starts going through an upper shelf down the isle from the rest of the copper tubing. Sure as sh!t! Score! One box left of 1/2" ID 60 foot long copper tubing. Price: $28.54 out the door.

FWIW I went to the Glendale CA HD.... None on the shelf... The sales associate said there was 1 still in the system... He climbed up the ladder to look for me. No dice. He said there were none (of the 1/2" 50 ft) in stock nearby.

So there might be 1 in Glendale if you can get someone to find it for you.

Pretty sure I'm gonna end up selling mine and buying a pre made one. Just don't have the time with a major surgery approaching. I'm out on eastern Long Island if someone local is interested pm me.
