Brass pipe is extensively used in plumbing, particularly for hot-water distribution lines. Hot water rusts steel much faster than cold water does. Also, brass pipe on hot-water lines does not color water red as steel pipe often does. To avoid corrosion, brass pipe must be at least 67% copper and 37% zinc. The best grade (red brass pipe) is 85% copper and 15% zinc.
