They don't rot out like galvanized does, easier to work with, good with pressure.

ANS 2 - ALL copper pipes eventually develop pinholes. MUCH better to go PEX for interior water piping !

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

User Avatar

No, because copper pipes cannot rust.

No, copper is a metallic element.

Solder. It is an alloy of lead and tin, with a (relatively) low melting point. It only works with Copper or lead pipes.

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.

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.

Copper is suited for pipes, but not for moulding into faucets as it's not strong. All faucets are steel, with a chrome coating.

User Avatar

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.

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.

Copper pipes are very durable and most advised.

Copper pipes are used in refrigeration system because of their great resistivity to corrosion and oxidation ( last longer). Furthermore, it is very malleable.
