If the copper pipes are full and the water is trapped, the pipes will split at the weakest point when exposed to continuous freezing temperatures. A testament to the power of crystallizing water.
Copper is used as hot water pipes because the copper will not corrode when the hot water goes through the pipes
No, because copper pipes cannot rust.
Copper pipes will last the longest. firstname.lastname@example.org
Solder. It is an alloy of lead and tin, with a (relatively) low melting point. It only works with Copper or lead pipes.
No, copper is a metallic element.
=== === By the way I doubt very seriously your using copper pipes your using copper TUBING
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.
The cost to have copper pipes repaired depends on how many pipes need to be repaired and what the extent of the damage is. If all of the copper pipes in a house need to be replaced then it can be very expensive. If there is just a leak in one of the pipes then the cost will be much cheaper.
After copper oxidizes it becomes verdigris, or green. Your pipes have just naturally changed color.
Copper pipes are perfectly safe. If you were to consume too much copper you could then suffer from copper toxicity, however metallic copper is not very soluble in water, and you will not get any excessive amount being dissolved by using copper pipes. Also note that in very small amounts, copper is actually beneficial, since it is a necessary trace element. So copper pipes are good. Or what I was told is that the Romans drank out of copper pipes and they all went mad but that's what i heard.
Yes, in most situations.
well a fuel pipes, are the copper pipes that carry fuel from the fuel pump to the engine. That is the simple answer.
Copper Wire, Copper Water Pipes, Pennies,
Most drain pipes are made of copper
Copper is suited for pipes, but not for moulding into faucets as it's not strong. All faucets are steel, with a chrome coating.
Because at one time copper was plentiful and cheap. This is no longer the case and new plastics are taking the place of many copper pipes.
we are one of the largest manufactuer of copper and brass pipes, some of our copper pipes for medical gas using. email@example.com
Yes, copper pipes are used extensively in plumbing.
Copper is more or less unreactive matal
Electrolysis in plumbing affects the copper pipes used. If electrical wiring is installed too closely to copper water pipes, the electrical current running through the wiring charges to copper piping combined with the water and its properties causes electrolysis in the copper water pipes thereby weakening them.
