1. What is galvanized tubing used for?

  • Galvanized tubing is a steel tube that has been coated with zinc to prevent rusting.
  • It is used in the construction industry for water supply lines, drainage systems, and many other applications. 

2. Does galvanized steel rust?

  • Galvanized steel tubing is an excellent choice for projects where you want to avoid rust.
  • It has a heavy-duty galvanized coating that protects it from corrosion, so the metal won’t rust or corrode.
  • It’s also more durable than other types of metal, making it ideal for use in industrial settings.

3. How long does galvanized pipe last?

  • The life expectancy of galvanized steel pipe is 30 to 50 years.

4. What are the advantages and disadvantages of Galvanising?

  • Advantages:
  • It protects from rust and corrosion.
  • It increases the strength of the material.
  • It is durable, especially when applied correctly.
  • Disadvantages:
  • It can be expensive compared with other coatings like paint or powder coating, but it lasts longer.

5. Should I replace my galvanized pipes?

  • If you’re not sure if your galvanized pipes need replacing, here are some signs that they might:
  • Rusty water
  • If your water has rusted, or you’ve noticed brown or black particles in the shower head or tub, it might be time for a new set of plumbing.
  • Cracked pipe
  • When you notice that one section of the pipe has broken while the other is intact, it’s time to replace the entire system, as this is an indication that the entire pipe is fragile and doesn’t hold up well under pressure. When this happens, it can also lead to leaks in other areas.
  • If possible, try to repair the crack before it spreads further; otherwise, consider replacing the entire set of pipes instead of waiting until they have a problem.
