In response to Re: galvanized vent question...
: Being that a vent simply vents air and gases and not liquid, I should not have to replace a galvanized vent for corrosion and rust correct? Or am I mistaken, in that it can fail over time?

: I am redoing my whole bathroom and trying to replace everything that is old esp. galvanized sink drain and horizontal 2 foot run of a lead pipe that is toilet drain before it ties into the vertical CI that runs straight down to basement.

: I just figure that a galvanized vent should last much longer then a galvanized drain pipe correct??

: as always, thanks in advance,

Hi Harvey, many times I have found depending on the vapor that a galv vent will not last as long as a Galv waste or soil or leader line.

Oxydation does take its toll.

The walls are open piping exposed CHANGE IT
