But in the past time, zinc coated steel pipe is a common choice. But it can’t resist corrosion and bacteria. Besides, the inner wall has poor scaling resistance. Thus after long-term contact between water and the inner wall of the pipe, it is easy to rust and enter the water. Then it will pollute the water. At the same time, due to the threaded connection, it is easy to loosen and leak for a long time. Therefore, cold-dip steel pipe were clearly banned in 2000. And hot-dip galvanized steel pipes were also used for a limited time.
