Q: Bad pipe stand?
Consider posting a new topic of what was wrong with the pipe stand that you tried. I'm curious about what didn't work, whether it was high cost or unavailable materials or the design or the building tools.
Pipe stands are more easily moved to a new location than many others. With the right padding, they are less intrusive than other materials.
Cheap, portable, or well-designed, pick two. If at all possible, I would spend more to have something that is landlord friendly and can be moved repeatedly.
