 dielectric union
Author: pallen (AK)

I have an HC model Modine crawlspace, hydronic heater with a fan. It has copper tubing, and my supply and return lines are copper. There are no dissimilar metals. Only bronze connections besides copper. Since there is an electric fan, do I need dielectric unions, or will brass unions be ok? I was also advised to use flex pipe, but the only flex pipe I can find is SS. The old flex pipes were copper. What is your suggestion on the flex pipe? thanks!

no dissimilar metals = no need for dielectric unions

A di-electric would be a detriment, since THEY ARE made of disimilar metals.
