Re: Replace Galvanized Iron Pipes
When you go to join the old pipes to the new pipes, I recommend running a threading die on the existing pipe to clean up the threads. If you do this, you're less likely to have a leak at that joint.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
