Inferior galvanized pipe
Posted by Norman R Baker on February 16, 19100 at 17:21:02:
My house was built in 1983 and inferior imported galvanized pipe was used. I have had to replace some sections because of rust and am told that all the horizontal pipes need to be replaced. Also the down drops normally don't leak so I am told they do not need replacing. My question is shouldn,t I replace the down drops also and what kind of pipe should be used (copper galvanized or pcv)? Also this is a two story house with the pipe in the attic except for the down drops, so how much should I expect to pay
