Increasing the Longevity of Your Copper Piping

When your copper piping lasts for a long time, you won’t have to worry about replacing the components of your plumbing system. Certain elements can reduce its lifespan, however, so check out this video on increasing the longevity of your copper piping.

Copper will corrode when it’s exposed to water, so copper piping comes with a protective film on the interior. Leaving the water off for extended periods of time can also contribute to this problem, so avoid this whenever possible. Sometimes, it’s the velocity of the waterflow that erodes the protective film, and cold water is more likely to carry residue through the pipes. Work with your plumber and take protective steps to avoid these issues.
