    Default Water in conduit

    Today I was redirecting some conduit for a client when I found rust and water in a 5 ft section of conduit. This conduit is located in a vaulted attic right next to the ladder for attic access. In 15 years I have never seen anything like this before, especially the rust part saying as conduit is galvanized. My first thought was condensation. Any thoughts on this? I will check other lines to see if this is an attic wide problem. Thanks

    A few hours drive from here.

    I think your condensation theory is probably on the money.

    Warm moist air is probably entering this conduit from the heated spaces during the winter months and then condensing.

    Sounds like condensation is your problem.

    And galvy coatings ain't what they used to be.

    We've got stubs of galvy windmill legs at the farm that are like new when dug up. They've been there for a hundred years or more. Try that with today's galvy coatings. <G>
