Can you connect brass directly to copper?
As long as it is a sweat fitting. The term for soldering copper is to sweat it. Don't ask me why.

Is it okay to connect copper pipe to brass to galvanized to brass and back to copper or will it cause a reaction that will corrode the pipes?
Answer . If you do connect copper pipe to galvanized pipe, you will need a dielectric coupling or else the galvanized pipe will corrode. Same with connecting galvanized pip…e to brass fittings. Brass is an alloy that contains copper and therefore the same electrolytic properties will exist unless a dielectric coupling is used. Hope that helps you out.
Answer . none whatsoever, the metals are related. just do not use black metal pipe
You don't glue it, you sweat them. That is the term used for soldering them together.
There is no chemical reaction that will happen if galvanized pipesare connected to copper pipes via a brass intermediary. The reasonis that brass does not react to either copp…er or zinc, the mineralused to galvanize metal pipes.
Absolutely, positively, YES as both are non ferrous metals and there is no possibility of galvanic corrosion or electrolytic action taking place.. Presuming your taking about… RED BRASS as opposed to Yellow
In order to connect a chromed steel pipe to a copper pipe, you will need a brass fitting. These two pipes will not fit into each other otherwise.
NO but you will need some type of sealent OR braze or soldering
Do you need a dielectric fitting for all different metal to metal connections such as copper to galvanized and copper to brass?
Yes, and make sure it has the DZR stamp of approval.
Any pipe dope will work but Teflon tape is a lot cleaner.
Yes, either by sweating it or with the right fitting on the copper for the brass to screw on. Yes by soldering , brazing, adapters such as Flagg flow TP fittings , Flaire, sc…rewed , Mechanicl joints
Yes, you can either solder them or fit mechanical (threaded) fittings.
Most places, a dielectric union will prevent the dissimilar metals from corroding. Some places, the water is so hard that even a dielectric union won't help. If I wanted to tr…ansition from steel to copper or brass, I would use PVC. Modern formulations of PVC are less likely to pose the hazards that the older formulation caused. There are some plumbers who have not kept current with latest industry standards, insult people and use bold font to try to make their point. They will be alarmists against using PVC because their information is based on older, outdated information. Please consult the attached link or search on the topic, yourself. . Today, plastic plumbing products designed for potable water applications are usually designated with either "NSF-PW" or "NSF-61" to indicate that the product complies with the health effects requirements of NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for materials designed for contact with potable water.. There are dielectric nipples rather then a union as unions can leak over time. Brass (Red ) is 85 % copper and 15% Zinc Yellow Brass is 60% copper 40% Zinc either one can be connected to copper BUT the coefficient of expansion per degree factor that has to be considered on hot water piping Galvanized can be safely connected to a brass valve with no problems such as Gas lines (Natural ) run out doors where rusting is encountered. PVC is carcinogenic , not recommended for hot water or high pressure, needs more supports and cannot come into contact with direct sun light thus You should seriously consider the source before you take any information of a site or the very least find out the actual qualifications of the person giving advice as your life may depend on it y
Sure why not
No clue what you just asked
It's ok as long as none touch each other. Use a coupling with plastic or rubber centre.
