Galvanized steel water pipe
Galvanized steel water pipe is an older plumbing pipe that is no longer used for home plumbing systems. It is used to join plumbing appliances and plumbing fixtures sometimes. Galvanized steel water pipe won’t usually burst but it will freeze and it will leak. Water damage from galvanized water pipes is usually a water leak. They rust from the inside out and fail at the threaded water pipe joints. Older galvanized steel water pipes can be a danger due to build up of lead and other chemicals in the rusting interior. Chunks of rust can break away and clog or foul your water system. At Advocate Master Plumbing we replace your leaking galvanized water pipes with a copper or pex water pipe repair and installation.

Galvanized steel water pipe is a pretty unforgiving pipe. It only has a couple of common ways that it can be joined.
