Is anyone having problems with steel pipe corrosion after using the older glycerin?
Three year old condominium complex was an NFPA 13R job. About 75% of the pipe is CPVC with exposed basements installed in steel. We hydo-tested four of the buildings in the winter with the glycerin before the buildings had heat so the builder can insulate and sheetrock. We drained out what we could but did not pull any heads in the basement. We didn't think leaving some trapped glycerin in the steel basement piping would be anything to be concerned about.
The basements have developed pin hole leaks and the odor when draining is putrid! I saw the new UL-listed (Freezemaster) antifreeze states, "includes a corrosion inhibitor package".
Any help/advice is greatly appreciated in stopping this attack on the pipe.
