    Sorry, for some reason it wasn't posting properly so I must've been too click happy.

    As for the photos, I tried linking with my Amazon Cloud drive and that did not work. I then tried Flickr and put the link it and that does not work either.

    Should I try Photobucket next?

    Weird.

          My initial question got deleted, not sure why. I've asked admin Josh but no reply yet.

          I tried to upload photos using my Amazon Cloud drive, but I guess https links don't work.

          I then tried Flickr, but that does not work either.

          I'll try again if this post sticks.

          thanks

              hopefully this pic stays.

              Do I have a major issue here?

              This 1 inch pipe feeds the furnace, stove, and water heater.

              Do I take a wire brush to it? Weld it? Union 2 new pieces together?

              I'm in California.

              thanks guys.

                got the photo



                you can't weld it or use unions. only a left and right and i believe a left and right still needs to be accessible. don't think it can be buried.

                i would lightly wire brush it and see how deep it really is. 1'' pipe is approx. 3/16'' thick. i doubt you've worn it too deep. remember that when the pipe is threaded, a considerable amount of pipe wall is cut away in the threading process.

                once you wire brush it, then apply a soapy solution to the area and check for leaks, bubbles. of course you would already smell it if it was leaking. i would clean things up and wash the area. possibly apply a zinc rich instant cold galvanizing spray to further protect the steel from any more moisture prior to repairing the wall surface. it's also important to properly water proof the shower wall that allowed the moisture in.

                  Thanks Rick for the tips. As always, you're the bomb!

                  Some followup questions:

                  If I put an L&R, can i put it up in an attic space (just above this bathroom)? Should I put a shutoff upstream from the L&R for quick shutoff purposes? Wired-in Explosive gas alarm in attic?

                  also....

                  If I wire brush it and there is a hole, how much should I expect in terms of cost for a licensed plumber to fix this, ~$200-ish?

                  thanks guys!

                    Quite literally, if this hack blows himself up.
                    I know you got it going on, but I can see liability rearing it's ugly head.

                      LOL!

                      Yeah, that's why I want to hire a licensed plumber to do this.
