Episode Summary

EDIT
Investigating Copper Pipe Corrosion/What Is It?/Weather Stripping a Drafty Door
AIRED:
Richard examines a viewer's corroded copper pipes and identifies the source of the corrosion: a rusty hot water heater. Materials engineer Richard Lewis explains that copper water pipes will normally develop a thin uniform film on the inside of the pipes, which protects the pipe from further corrosion. In the Ask This Old House loft, Tom, Richard, Roger and Kevin examine an unfamiliar object and try to guess how it is used. Then Tom helps a homeowner replace the worn out weather stripping around his drafty kitchen door by replacing the foam weather stripping and installing a new door sweep across the bottom of the door.moreless
