replacing galvanized pipes
Posted by Ryan Sisemore on February 08, 19101 at 11:59:43:
I have a 40 year old home with galvanized steel water lines. As you have already guessed, they are full of corrosion. I was told that the main corrosion is in the horizontal stretches of pipe. As I am on a limited budget and must do the work myself, I was wondering if this makes sense. I wouldn't have to tear out the walls and the costs would be less. Am I dreaming here? Also, I understand that galvanized to copper unions promote corrosion. Any advice would be helpful. By the way, the line from the water main to the house has already been replaced with copper.
