Did you know? At some stage in the early 20th century galvanising pipe become the method used to replace previously used cast iron and lead in cold water plumbing applications. Traditionally, gal pipes rusts from the inside out because the layers of plaque builds up from within the pipe. This causes water pressure issues and at some stage the replacement of that pipe is necessary due to failure. This can take substantial period of time though, with the estimated life expectancy of gal pipe upwards of 70 years. (Various factors can effect this time, in particular the initial wall thickness of the pipe that was galvanised, proximity to electrical grids and regional issues with impurities of the water.)
Since the second world war galvanised pipe has been replaced in drinking applications by copper and plastic. It is however heavily used in industrial applications for mining and fire protection systems which includes fire hydrants.
