"Pipes content"


"What happens if water pipes contain only 50% copper? I understand the international standard for copper content is much higher. The content are as follows: Copper: 57.008, Zinc: 40.17, Lead: 1.964, Tin: 0.381. What are the health implications of the type of pipe as specfied above? Would it be vulnerable to corrosion?"


We know of no regulatory health restrictions on your stated alloy, based on its composition. Regarding its corrosion tendency, it would depend on the environment.
