Brass or Galvanized At Boiler
« on: September 17, 2019, 04:49:19 PM »

Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the type of fittings to use.
I have brass or copper fittings everywhere else but I was thinking on using galvanized 1" barbed to 1" barbed to join the Logstor to the flex pipe at the boiler. These seem be be more ready available and I was wondering if it was advisable to use them.

Do NOT use galvanized fitting in a hot water heating system. That's just asking for galvanic corrosion and a lifetime of leak chasing. Do yourself a favor and use either black malleable or brass fittings
