Is there a standard or code basis for when pipe is required to be replaced due to corrosion or loss in the pipe wall thickness?
It's usually to the building owner's benefit to examine or replace portions of pipe that are corroded, or consider full-system replacement when a renovation opportunity occurs. Just curious if there's a standard or code basis that would otherwise force pipe replacement.
