In response to Re: Water supply for toilet
: A friend suggested that the plumber may have simply coated the copper stub out with solder. Is that likely? Wise?


Silver sounds like galvanized steel. You can replace them with brass. Terry

: : I'm installing copper supply plumbing for a basement bathroom. The 3-inch stub-outs for the existing toilets in my home are silver.

: : I'd rather not have exposed copper even for the toilet supply. At the risk of asking a stupid question, are the copper stub-outs for the existing toilets just painted silver or am I looking at a threaded pipe nipple similar to what joins the shower supply plumbing to the shower head?
