Plumbing – Milpitas – Copper Pipes
This article is part of a series, whose lead article is Plumbing 101.
Copper is the most common type of piping used today.
When homes are “re-piped”, what that generally means is galvanized pipes are replaced with copper pipes.
Copper is lightweight, reliable, easy to work with once you know how to solder a connection, and very, very durable.
Copper does not rust the way galvanized pipes do.
As copper pipes oxidize (which is what causes rust) they turn green (over a long time), but do not introduce anything harmful into the water.
