I've heard from several installers that small diameter schedule 10 pipe (such as 1-1/4") will warp if there's more than two welded outlets made onto it.
Would any installer/contractors weigh in on how you best combat this problem?
I could see larger diameter (1-1/2" or more) schedule 10 as a possible solution, which also helps hydraulics. I could also see voluntarily going to schedule 40 as a possible solution. Cutting the pipe into shorter segments and adding couplings would also help, but I could see the cost adding up for the labor, couplings, and additional hangers.
