Full description

Copper pipework is widely used in the building services industry for water distribution. It has been a popular choice due to its relatively high corrosion resistance, malleability and durability. However, certain types of corrosion do occur, and many have been observed first-hand by BSRIA. This guide looks at some of these corrosion problems, together with ways to avoid them. Some background on pipe chemistry in water systems has also been included.
