Dialectic unions for plumbing.

P1010608Copper and galvanized pipes.These two types of plumbing pipes have been around a long time, they must not be connected directly together. If they do then you may have a situation where electrolysis may develop. This is when one or both of the pipes will become thin and the material that makes up the pipe will dissolve or be eaten up by the contact between the two pipes. In the case of this the plumber should use a dialectic union to separate the two pipes from each other. This will stop any corrosion of the pipes when in use.

If you ever have a situation like this visit our pipeline leak page for more information.
