    I think it's 15,000 btu's that can be done off 15mm pipe, but what about 22mm

    So I can run 150 metres of 15mm pipe with 40 bends and have enough pressure to run 15,000 btu appliance? Watch out for the backstabbers! ;)

    You are not asking the right questions, you are not going to get an answer that is useful to you.

    Do you mean the heat loss of 15 and 22mm pipe?

    British thermal units are a way of measuring the heat output of radiators etc, amongst other things.

    But heating power has been measured in kilowatts for a very long time.

    BTU is an old unit from the days of steam power!
