In response to Re: Galvanized Pipe
Use flax (plumbers hemp) & Boss white (pipe jointing compound) and you will have no problems.

: My husband is trying to replace some very old, rusted out galvanized pipe in the basement which leads from the main line to the well bladder and then the water softener. He used pipe dope to join the pipes and tightened them as tightly as he could, but they are still leaking at the joints. Any suggestions? He thought maybe Teflon tape in addition to the pipe dope. Any advice is appreciated.
