      I’m home shopping in neighborhoods
      where the houses are 30-40 years
      old. They mostly have galvanized
      steel pipe plumbing. How long does
      this kind of pipe last? How can
      you tell when it should be replaced?

      Thanks … -George

      They usually last 30-40 years. You can tell when to replace them if the exterior of the pipe has numerous rust spots or the water slows down at a faucet when another faucet is used.
