I know (from reading this thread) that galvanized parts should not be used inside a UDS unless the galvanized coating is removed chemically or by super-heating.
I have chosen to just avoid using galvanized parts altogether since I don't have a weed-burner, a torch, or the required acid.
I used conduit nuts on the inlet nipples. The package said "Steel". Am I right to assume (now), that they are galvanized steel?
Should I be concerned about the 3 conduit nuts that are way down inside my UDS?
Thanks for any help.
I soaked my conduit nuts in vinegar for a couple day and it took all of the zinc off...like others said, I'm sure its a non-issue, but it's just one less thing to worry about.
