We recently had our kitchen remodeled. We have a steam heat system - when our contractor had to reroute one of the black pipes that was a part of that heating system, he replaced it with a soldered copper pipe. We have heard from several professionals since that copper piping should never be used in steam heat systems. In fact, our boiler manual (Weil-Mclain) specifies that only black piping should be used. We are very afraid - and have been advised by other respected plumbers, that almost assuredly that pipe will leak within a couple of years, potentially causing us great expense and trouble. Should we change out the pipe?
