Claims

1. A pipe support apparatus for supporting a pipe during the construction of a building comprising:

2. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said securing bracket further includes at least a first pair of apertures, said first pair of apertures being provided for insertion of a securing band therethrough.

3. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 2 wherein said securing bracket is attachable to a pipe utilizing a securing band inserted through said first pair of apertures and fastened around the circumference of the pipe.

4. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 1 wherein said first attachment member comprises a base bracket including:

5. A pipe support apparatus for supporting a pipe during the construction of a building comprising:

6. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 5 wherein when said first support member is connected to said first means, said first support member extends at a first angle therefrom; and wherein when said second support member is connected to said first means, said second support member extends at a second angle therefrom.

7. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 6 wherein said first and said second support members are pivotally moveable when connected to said second means such that pivotally moving said first and said second support members permits said pipe support apparatus to be adjustable to be usable to support pipes located at a variety of distances from a form board.

8. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 7 wherein said second means comprises a securing bracket having a semi-spherical surface for attachment of a pipe thereto and includes a pair of orifices for insertion of one end each of said first and said second support members.

9. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 8 wherein said securing bracket further includes at least a first pair of apertures, said first pair of apertures being provided for insertion of a securing band therethrough.

10. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 7 wherein said first means comprises a base bracket including:

11. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 7 wherein said first and said second angles are selected from between 20 and 70 degrees.

12. The pipe support apparatus according to claim 7 wherein said first and said second angles are selected from between 30 and 60 degrees.
