Why replace my galvanized system?
Galvanized pipe was manufactured and installed between 1880 and 1960. It was dipped in a naturally occurring molten zinc. Naturally occurring zinc is impure, containing toxic substances such as lead. The coating extends the lifespan of the pipe, but leaves behind substances that can be harmful to users. A build up of iron oxide forms as Galvanized pipe corrodes from the inside out. The inside diameter also shrinks and chokes water volume throughout the home. Iron oxide stains the water and porcelain, and is NOT healthy for consumption.
Uneven Water Pressure In Galvanized Pipe
Because of the corrosion that forms on the inside of the pipe, low or uneven water pressure can occur. Not all areas of the pipe will corrode at the same rate, so the inside circumference of one pipe feeding one sink may become smaller than another pipe feeding another area of the home.
