No. Call the policy company back and tell them to send a competent plumber who does not use "psycobabble". Right offhand, I cannot visualize how a drop in pressure would turn a faucet on, and then turn it off again when the pressure restores, but electrolysis would have nothing to do with it. It has to be in the faucet itself, not the piping to it.

: We just bought a house that is 43 years old. When you flush the toilet or run the washing machine water runs (not drips, runs) out of the shower head. The house is covered by our new home owners insurance policy but they sent a plumber out who said it wasn't covered because the problem was, and I quote, "The shower was improperly installed and has copper to galvanized pipes with no dyelectric union causing electrolysis."

: I'm not a plumber but that diagnosis just doesn't make sense to me. Is that a possibility, or should we pay $45.00 to get a second opinion?
: Please help!
