In response to Re: pipe strapping
Thanks for the replies, guys. The straps were pretty loose... no, they were not copper. They were silver, felt like steel. So, I guess it would be worth while to go back in and put a barrier (e.g. tape?) between the straps and the copper pipe. Or, better yet, if they make copper straps, that would be even better. I'll check into that as well.

: If the straps that you used were copper coated, there's nothing to worry about, that's what they're made for.
: If they're any other material you may have a problem down the road but it will be a long time before any leaks occur. I have seen in older homes that steel nails were used and bent around brass piping to secure it, 50+ years and no leaks but brass piping is much thicker than copper.
