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 pipe 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.
There are copper fittings that will connect to galvanized.
Yes. Use a threaded fitting, male or female as needed on the copper and screw the galvanized into it.You must use a dielectric fitting to connect copper to galvanized pipe. If you don't, a galvanic reaction will occur and the piping will corrode and leak. You can use a Dielectric Union or a Threaded Brass fitting to join the two types of piping together.UNIONS can leak the best answer would have been a dielectric nipple
Not with out an dielectric fitting to prevent electrolytic action from taking place or dezincification of the brass if it is yellow brass ( 60% copper 40% zinc ) Red Brass 85 % copper /15% Zinc will corrode the galvanized piping
Addition of copper sulfate will poison your algae. It will also corrode any brass or zinc (galvanized) that it comes in contact with.
usually copper corrodes from a chemical process known as "galvanic reaction". This is caused when copper is touching dissimilar metal such as steel or galvanized. a di-electric union is used to prevent this. further questions Jeff at email@example.com
Electrolytic action and if the galvanized is connected to Yellow Brass as opposed to Red Brass you have dezincification
Galvanized piping should NEVER be installed under ground UNLESS well insualted
yes. Copper to Galvanized must have a dielectric fitting to avoid a galvanic reaction causing corrosion and eventual leaks.
There is no chemical reaction that will happen if galvanized pipes are connected to copper pipes via a brass intermediary. The reason is that brass does not react to either copper or zinc, the mineral used to galvanize metal pipes.
yes a copper penny can corrode but it takes a long time for it to do so
A threaded copper fitting on the copper side, male or female, and the galvanized is screwed into it.
