  • Propress, Copper to Galvinized

    I'm replacing 2" old galvy from the 2nd floor to the first floor on a 7 story building. I wanna remove the galvy from the tees and replace with copper propress. What do u guys use to seperate the dielectric. Union fittings or a brass coupling? Also how easy are those 2" repair couplings for the propress? Thanks

      Looking into that, I found that those adapters are bronze not brass. Will they work the same way as brass. I knew I should have listened more in science class. I do know that brass and bronze are differant. But could only find the PP adapter that says its bronze.

        They do make a ProPress dielectric union. The way I did it was I used a brass IPS union then the ProPress male adapter. The key to using the repair coupling is to mark the socket depth on the pipe so you can ensure it is grabbing each pipe properly. It does slide pretty easy if that is your concern.
