Galvanized piping was a popular choice in the early 1900’s. It was used to replace cast iron and lead pipes of previous years. Although it may have been a better alternative, it is no longer the preferred choice. In fact, certain cities have ordinances that require homeowners to replace all galvanized pipes before you can resell your home. Galvanization is the process of covering steel pipes with a zinc coating that reduces rust. However, over time, the steel eventually begins to corrode and causes major issues in your plumbing system and typically only last 70 years before they can no longer be used.
