Hi everyone and welcome back to the SteelTek blog!
Recently We have had a lot of questions about out SteelTek Pipe so we are creating this blog post to help answer those questions.
Where is SteelTek located?
Lowe's is the primary retailer for SteelTek products. We started in Lowes in 2015 and now service over 1100 stores nationwide.
ACE is also a partner of SteelTek, and as a franchise company any ACE store has the ability to order SteelTek from their warehouse. If your local ACE does not currently carry SteelTek you can introduce them to the website and ask them to place an order.
Can I purchase SteelTek direct?
SteelTek is a branded product name created and distributed by BK Products. As a distribution company BK Products primarily sells to big box retailers, plumbing wholesalers and OEMs. We can only sell to entities that can provide tax exempt forms and meet our minimum order quantities.
Where can i find SteelTek pipe sizes not available in my local Lowe's?
SteelTek pipe is based off of IPS (Iron Pipe Size). This means SteelTek pipe and be substituted with Black and Galvanized Pipe found in the plumbing section of a hardware store. The only difference in these pipes is the threading and minimum oil residue from the threading process. Most hardware stores have the capability to cut steel pipe to custom lengths. From there, any left over oil residue can be wiped off using a rag with mild soap and water.
Hope this helps everyone with future projects and if you have any questions you can get in touch with us using the Contact Us Today for on the homepage.
