How Can My 1924 Water Main Be Galvanized If It Still Works? & Best Grounding Methods
We have been planning on preventively replacing our 1924 3/4" water main. Almost everyone else's --galvanized--on the block has long ago failed. Ours works fine, no noticeable pressure issues. I just had to lower house pressure from 70 to 60. The box is on the street a 20 feet away and the pipe comes through the floor and attracts to magnets so I assume that means it's galvanized. Could it be some other metal? (Westchester ny). Don't want to replace it if I don't have to. Our thought was that if we waited until it failed it could be at a very inconvenient time and also we had no idea WHERE it would fail, possibly near the house and cause a flood inside and out.
