If you own an older home (pre-dating the 1960’s), you may still have galvanized piping in place. Galvanized steel pipes pose a danger to your home, as they corrode over time, and cause a buildup of lead to develop within water supplies.
Once known as the “pipe of the future”, polybutylene piping was installed as a replacement for galvanized steel varieties. Unfortunately, this type of piping developed its own problems. These pipes flake and become brittle over time, due to the chlorine and other agents within the water supply negatively interacting with polybutylene.
Now, the recommendation for either galvanized steel of polybutylene piping is to completely repipe your entire home.
