Plumbing Pipes - Galvanized Steel



Galvanized steep pipers were used frequently in plumbing through the early 60's. This type of pipe tends to corrode and flake over time, so it is not typically called upon in modern construction. However, the typical life expectancy of galvanized steel pipes is 40 years, so there are some establishments that have not yet updated to modern plumbing and these pipes can still be found within their walls. 

Galvanized pipes are created by placing the steel materials into a bath of molten zinc. The two chemicals are bonded together and will never separate, giving these pipes their long lifespan. 


In the late 1900's when this type of pipe was being phased out, copper replaced it as the material of choice. Copper pipes are more resistant to lime scale buildup than galvanized pipes, hence the reason for the replacement.

  1. Primarily, a great plumber must be keen to deliver exceptional plumbing services. In addition to making sure that all your plumbing structures function just fine, an incredible plumber should be ready with the needed tools, and he should swiftly respond to any plumbing emergencies like leaking pipes or blocked sewers in the most competent way possible.

  2. Pipes play a vital role when constructing a house or a building. They are used to transport liquid. Common types of pipes include lead, copper, and the galvanized pipe. It used to be that lead was the main type of pipe ever since it's the initial invention of pipes. However, lead pipes had been linked to sickness and infant mortality problems, so they were replaced with copper and galvanized pipes. Galvanized ones are pre-manufactured pipes coated with zinc, making them more advanced and improved than old steel and iron pipes. These last for about 40-50 years.
