Preparation and installation.

  1. The first thing that takes place to start generating your steel pole order is us purchasing the required pipe that we need: Two 10' sections 2 3/8"O.D. schedule 40 black plumber's pipe. We make sure that one of the 10' sections is threaded at both ends. The second section of pipe we have cut in half so we have two 5' sections of pipe. One section is threaded at both ends and the second section only needs to be factory threaded end at one end.

  2. The next step that is taken is the preparation of the pipe to receive a painted finish. We mechanically sand off the factory coating from the pipe to remove all of the drippings that are generally on one side of the pipe when it comes out of the factory. Once we have sanded the pipe down to a smooth finish we are ready for the painting process.

  3. Our first application is two coats of Rust-Oleum brown primer, and then we install two coats of Rust-Oleum flat black enamel paint. This gives the bat house pole a nice finished look and no worry about rust for many many years to come. The coupling and top cap are also finished with the same painting process.
