|In response to Re: galvinized plumbing|
When you say they are in good shape, did someone actually go into the attic and run his hand over the entire piping system? Galvanized pipes can operate properly, but sometimes if you do a physical inspection you may find, especially on the hot water, some or many rust spots on the pipe that have leaked and rusted shut before they were noticed.
: I am buying a home with galvinized plumbing that was built in 1954. The pipes appear to be in good shape. Should I re-plumb? Would a water softner or magnet system work to keep the pipes clean? The plumbing is not in the ground. It is run through the attic. Does this make a difference? Thanks
