pipe strapping
Posted by Tom on January 01, 2004 at 22:48:52:
I might have made a mistake when I strapped some copper pipes. Had the wall opened up, so took the opportunity to strap down some copper pipes running into my bathroom sink. Only after I had replaced the sheetrock and taped, etc. did I realize that I did not put some barrier between the copper supply pipes and the strapping. I used standard straps from Home Depot, one was mounted with one screw and the other with two screws. I assumed since they came from the plumbing area of HD they would be fine for any piping, but perhaps I was wrong.

Will such strapping interact with the copper piping and cause corrosion or electrolysis? TIA.
