Wherever you connect copper to galvanized, you need a dielectric union to prevent galvanic corrosion.

If you cannot change all of the galvanized now, try changing the last 10 feet of galvanized, this is the section that will have the highest corrosion pluggage. Make sure you put dielectric unions at every junction of copper and galvanized.

Good luck,

Rick
