Governor, I am keeping a FILE with the "NOT READ" responses from Elected Officials when this CONFIRMED KILLER
Page 2 of 30
MATERIAL is sent to them. Please remind the Legislative Delegation and ALL BOCC members it is their duty and obligation to read the messages reporting a killer caused by their inaction which makes the County and Possibly STATE liable for damages from people who DIE from Hemochromatosis Toxic Reaction to Rust and Iron CAUSED ONLY BY THE BOCC COUNTY ORDINANCE 03-6 APPENDIX B ERROR which no one desires to ADMIT THEY MADE. Check with State Senator Ronda Storms who was a COUNTY COMMISSIONER BOCC HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FLORIDA AND DRAFTED THE ORDINANCED 03-6 APPENDIX B then see if SHE remembers the County Inspectors or WHO pushed for the Dielectric Union OUTSIDE use with Galvanized Piping and allowed Galvanized Piping DIRECT TO BRASS outside causing this KILLER and when it was signed. Ruth DeLaMater Bundy built homes up North in 1950's, formed Backflow Prevention, Inc. In perhaps 1987 and is a TRUE GENIUS EXPERT IN HEMOCHROMATOSIS PLUS EXPERT IN DIELECTRIC UNION USE IN RAIN PLUS ATTACHING DISSIMILAR METALS LIKE GALVANIZED TO BRASS CAUSING SUPER RUST ! She is a Licensed Real Estate Broker with too many years experience and also a State Licensed Security Officer plus Notary Public so SHE AND I SHARE TOO MANY LICENSES TO MAKE FALSE REPORTS TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS OR LEGISLATIVE DELEGATION, SHERIFFS OR FBI AS WE RISK CHARGES FOR MISLEADING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. You GOVERNOR have a killer unleashed within Hillsborough County, Florida where dissimilar metals are attached together creating super Rust/Iron which is being fed to the unsuspecting public, animals and pets KILLING THEM. I have cut down the message thread to make it shorter so YOU can call for investigation utilizing Professional Plumbing Contractors PLUS Building Professionals like General Contractors and PE's and medical Professionals who can confirm the deadly toxic Iron/Rust reaction on 1 out of every 200 American's in Florida ALONE. I encourage you immediately to order a full investigation to protect the public as this practice may have gone STATE WIDE as other entities share County Ordinances but especially since every home built since 1945 may have the same problem killing people with galvanized to brass which has slipped through the cracks because many Professional Plumbing Contractors State Certified DIDN'T DESIRE TO MAKE WAVES. My partner Ruth DeLaMater Bundy at age 82 gets a super toxic reaction to IRON/RUST IN WATER. She published the findings on the KILLER and confirmed same with HEMOCHROMATOSIS thus I got investigating with my camera and CONFIRMED TRUTH that Dielectric Unions cannot be out in the rain and galvanized piping cannot be connected to Brass Backflow Assemblies. Ruth DeLaMater Bundy MADE HER FINDINGS PUBLIC TO MEDICAL SCHOOLS, DOCTORS AND BOCC PLUS OTHER GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS as we are required to report A KILLER OF HUMANS, ANIMALS AND PETS when we know who is causing those people to DIE ! A simple MAGNET will confirm the killer location and removal plus cutting same at threads will show you what we see thus confirm the killer is there !

GEE.... SUPER RUST AND IRON ON STAINLESS STEEL ITEMS..... Num Num ! My yellow and red comments deserve telling that after I notified BOCC by a form on the Internet, Inspector Dicecco called Ruth DeLaMater Bundy and stated he had been told to respond and needed to know my questions on these issues perhaps giving him TWO questions to review with Hillsborough County. Since I was recovering from CANCER SURGERY on my face and head plus neck I held off responding until the bandages were removed after 48 hours. I called Inspector Dicecco who asked for the two questions to be provided so he could respond to someone who asked his opinion. I gave the two questions and was SUPER SURPRISED that it would appear the manufacturers NEVER AUTHORIZED DIELECTRIC UNIONS OUTSIDE, NEVER WERE ASKED ABOUT RAINWATER CANCELLING THEM OUT AND THE INSPECTORS SEEM TO CLAIM THE GALVANIZED PIPING TO BRASS
Page 6 of 30
BACKFLOW ASSEMBLIES OR SHUTOFFS WERE ALLOWED BY A FLORIDA COMMISSION which is really STUPID ! You have 1 out of every 200 residents, transients, visitors and others, especially Military AT RISK OF DYING FROM THIS KILLER WHICH CAN AND SHOULD BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY GOVERNOR. Hospitals, Day Care, Jails, Prisons, County Buildings, State Buildings, Federal Buildings, Homes, Temporary Structures for University or Schools and schools plus Universities ALL MAY HAVE THE GALVANIZED PIPING ATTACHED TO BRASS. It truly only takes seconds with a 30 pound MAGNET available from HARBOR FREIGHT costing $1.99 each to CONFIRM GALVANIZED ATTACHED TO BRASS thus closing off the flow with rust and iron which goes through hot and cold water to the people for drinking and cooking ! CHECK THE GOVERNOR'S MANSION ! Then get cracking with the Legislative Delegation and State members of the U.S. Congress to get this message to ALL MILITARY BASES IN THE UNITED STATES. Are YOU going to bet your life that this is RUBBISH GOVERNOR ? Drink ONLY DISTILLED WATER SIR ! How many will die from Toxic Rust Exposure in Airports, Interstate Rest Stops, Highway Patrol Offices or facilities, Marine Patrol Facilities, Military Bases for Florida National Guard and Florida Air National Guard facilities plus equipment and aircraft or boats, FORESTRY buildings and fire fighter sleeping areas ?

Ladies and Gentlemen: Inspector Dicecco from Hillsborough County Water Department, has improperly indicated Watts or any other Dielectric Union MAY BE INSTALLED OUTDOORS since Manufacturing Specifications do not denote In-Door or Out-Door installations at all. Such denial of professional verified results causing super toxic Rust and Iron generation let alone deterioration of piping galvanized to brass creating fractures of potable water lines is UNACCEPTABLE when Inspector's seek to verify there are NO PROBLEMS WITH CONNECTING GALVANIZED NIPPLES CUT SUPER THIN AT THREADS WITH BRASS FITTINGS LIKE EVEN BACKFLOW ASSEMBLIES OR SHUTOFF'S FOR WATER WHICH ARE BRASS IF NOT BALL VALVES AND OTHER ITEMS MADE OF BRASS IN BUILDINGS AND OUTSIDE BUILDINGS ! Inspector Robert Dicecco, called my office requesting I take the entire thread and convert same to TWO QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS as he had been instructed to respond to someone about the issues. TWO QUESTIONS WERE FORMULATED AND NO WHERE DOES THE ANSWER STATE WHAT INSPECTOR DICECCO OR COUNTY INSPECTORS RELY UPON TO CONFIRM BOCC COUNTY ORDINANCE 03-6 APPENDIX B was and is allowing SAFE AND PROPER CONNECTIONS OUTSIDE IN RAIN FROM GALVANIZED PIPING TO BRASS. To my professional practice I only install Backflow Assemblies OUTSIDE WITH ALL BRASS FITTINGS to stop this killer toxic level iron/rust ! Interior nipples of galvanized with brass fittings I recommend removal of the galvanized, use of SCHEDULE 80 PVC AND CPVC NIPPLES OR COMPONENTS and if using Galvanized Nipples I recommend CPVC OR PVC (CPVC FOR HOT WATER, PVC FOR COLD WATER) FEMALE THREADED BALL VALVES then new brass close nipple to sink riser shutoff which is BRASS at all sinks or hot water heaters. Such stops galvanic action in it's tracks inside any building and is an approved method. Perhaps Inspector Dicecco and the County Experts can point to the specific section OF THE FLORIDA BUILDING COMMISSION, let alone Florida Building Code which ALLOWS DIELECTRIC UNION OUTSIDE IN RAIN USE OR ALLOWS OUTSIDE OR INSIDE CONNECTIONS WITH BRASS, COPPER OR ANY OTHER MATERIALS WHEN USING GALVANIZED PIPING. The sad part of being a Professional Plumbing Contractor, State Certified Since 1984 is that one KNOWS you do not place dissimilar metals together
Page 8 of 30
inside or outside when it makes Rust/Iron which will be pushed through to the public or home owner's who may DIE FROM HEMOCHROMATOSIS let alone Commissioner's or Elected Officials, day care facilities, schools, hospitals, jails and prisons where the users of the potable water can have toxic reactions but ASSUME the County and Inspectors are VERIFYING OUTDOOR USE AND INDOOR USE when manufacturers do not denote such installations are dangerous. Professional CODES AND FINDINGS PUBLISHED YET IGNORED BY INSPECTORS AND SOME AT BOCC PERHAPS indicate the danger of connecting running potable water from galvanized to brass. The DIELECTRIC UNION is a great item for INSIDE OR PROTECTED LOCATIONS USE but were NEVER INTENDED TO BE USED OUTSIDE IN RAIN for the reasons shown and stated from Professionals. If a manufacturer of the Dielectric Union OR Dielectric Nipple DOES NOT INDICATE SUCH CAN OR CANNOT BE INSTALLED OUTSIDE IN RAIN, for any person within the County to push the BOCC to make such an addition involving even Galvanized Piping directly attached to threaded brass items is DARNED NEAR CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE FOLKS. I have provided pictures of super Rust and Iron formed inside galvanized piping when attached to BRASS. Large steel piping, unprotected attached to brass items causes rapid deterioration of the piping which always shows rust on concrete just before the potable water is super contaminated and the threads indeed will RUPTURE at an unknown date, professionally speaking. Take a MAGNET, preferably 30 pound pull like from Harbor Freight on West Fletcher just S.W. of Florida Avenue on Fletcher which costs $1.99 and attach same to the nipples in homes, outside and even on DIELECTRIC UNIONS to confirm the NIPPLE on BRASS SIDE HAS NOT BEEN REPLACED WITH GALVANIZED INTERIOR OR EXTERIOR which causes super rust quickly. I give the Magnets to Law Enforcement Officers to find PISTOLS IN WATER attaching the magnet to a rope. For RIFLES the same people sell a 150 POUND PULL magnet also which can be used with a rope to find heavier weapons or VEHICLES underwater. BOCC NOR INSPECTOR DICECCO may ignore specific failures within this County to properly inspect installations like at Barnes Industrial where TWO DIELECTRIC UNIONS ON GALVANIZED PIPING were improperly installed with GALVANIZED NIPPLE on the BRASS SIDE ATTACHING THE BRASS FEMALE THREAD TO GALVANIZED CLOSE NIPPLE THEN TO BRASS ASSEMBLY. Such TOXIC RUST is reflected by the employees being unable to drink the water and visual PROOF such is dangerous EVEN IF WRITTEN IN AS "OK TO USE DIELECTRIC UNION ON INCOMING GALVANIZED LINE" which actually protects NOTHING and makes all potable water TOXIC WITH RUSTIRON. Along comes an 82 year old Professional who is physically SHAKEN when drinking any water with
Page 9 of 30
Iron/Rust because she has the Same problems indicated in Hemochromatosis SPEAKING OUT as a Professional to County BOCC Commission members, Governor, media and other professionals PLUS Legislative Delegation and even Inspector Dicecco showing clearly the photographs taken confirming interior damage and exterior damage with super Rust/Iron formations ALL BECAUSE NO ONE VERIFIED ANYTHING LIKE SHE DID BEFORE DISCOVERY THAT THE BUILDING METHODS USING GALVANIZED TO BRASS FITTINGS IS KILLING PEOPLE, PETS, ANIMALS AND ESPECIALLY SUPER YOUNG AND OLD PEOPLE, some who are unaware the County BOCC Ordinance 03-6 Appendix B ALLOWS DISSIMILAR METALS OUTSIDE WITH OR WITHOUT A DIELECTRIC UNION AND THE DIELECTRIC UNION CREATES RUST WHEN IT RAINS CAUSING METALS TO HAVE A LINK DISSIMILAR ! Not many females like Ruth DeLaMater Bundy who used to build homes up North some 60 years ago and who has worked in Real Estate as a Broker now for too many years in Florida PLUS owns a Plumbing Contracting Firm BACKFLOW PREVENTION, INC. who photographs PROOF of the error of BOCC in allowing or stating such dissimilar metals can be connected outside PLUS indicated a DIELECTRIC UNION IN RAIN can be used. NOW I would ask for Inspector Dicecco, who had to respond to the BOCC or other County Higher Pay Grade Employees relative to the problem TO SHOW THE AUTHORIZATION PAGE AND SECTION OR PARAGRAPH NUMBER WHERE THE FLORIDA BUILDING COMMISSION OR EVEN THE FLORIDA PLUMBING CODES ALLOW GALVANIZED PIPING OUTSIDE TO BE ATTACHED TO BRASS OR RECOMMEND DIELECTRIC UNIONS OUTSIDE IN RAIN TO JOIN GALVANIZED TO BRASS LIKE IS DONE IN BACKFLOW ASSEMBLIES. Response that Manufacturer INSTRUCTIONS did not specify the Dielectric Union COULD NOT BE USED OUT DOORS is unacceptable as a reason to make such a requirement all over this County.
WAKE UP PEOPLE ! You have a killer reported, proof given and for YOU to ignore the KILLER of innocent men, women, children and animals when ALL PLUMBING CONTRACTOR'S AND GENERAL
Page 10 of 30
CONTRACTOR'S PLUS SPECIFIC OFFICIALS WITH PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS CAN TELL YOU WHAT IS BEING MANDATED IS WRONG AND DEADLY should wake up everyone who demands verification and specific instructions allowing galvanized direct to brass or dielectric unions placed in rain areas outside OR YOU SHOULD SEND OUT A CORRECTION AND WARNING TO THE PUBLIC, DEMAND INSPECTORS CHECK ALL SCHOOLS, OFFICES, HOSPITALS, HOMES, JAILS, PRISONS, DAY CARE AND OTHER FACILITIES TO STOP THIS KILLER AS WE ALREADY STATED TO ONE ON THIS LIST WHO LOST A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY
Page 11 of 30
TO HEMOCHROMATOSIS THAT THE TIME FOR FILING SUIT STARTED WHEN THEY FOUND OUT ABOUT THE KILLER AND CAN CONSULT WITH COUNSEL.
SEE MY STATEMENTS BELOW: "REMEMBER SOMETHING FOLKS --- A Dielectric Union has threaded Galvanized and threaded BRASS or Copper and threaded Galvanized. Such would MANDATE a galvanized nipple on galvanized side then a brass nipple on BRASS SIDE...some idiot plumbers or workers attach a galvanized nipple on the brass female threaded connection into the brass of the assembly which borders on CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE the same level as the COUNTY COMMISSION making up the COUNTY ORDINANCE 03-6 APPENDIX B allowing galvanized piping DIRECT TO THE OUTGOING OF THE ASSEMBLY which is indeed CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE IF NOT ACCESSORY TO MURDER since the people are dying from the TOXIC RUST/IRON in the potable water. IJNSPECTORS DO ONLY SEE THE DIELECTRIC NIPPLE ON INCOMING AND DO NOT CHECK THE NIPPLE GOING ON THE BRASS SIDE THUS WORKERS INSER CHEAPER GALVANIZED NIPPLE WHICH BREAKS DOWN. CHECK IT OUT ! GALVANIZED AND BRASS DIELECTRIC UNIONS ARE USELESS AND CREATE TOXIC RUST AND IRON OUTSIDE WHEN IN RAIN. " http://www.copper.org/applications/architecture/arch_dhb/fundamentals/arch_considerations.html And ESPECIALLY what other Professionals have written:
"When dissimilar metals are in contact with one another in the presence of an electrolyte, galvanic action occurs, resulting in the deterioration of the metal with the lower galvanic number. The electrolyte may be rain water running from one surface to
Page 12 of 30
another, or moisture from the air containing enough acid to cause it to act as an electrolyte."
I stand with Ruth DeLaMater Bundy as a Florida Plumbing Contractor, FLORIDA WHISTLEBLOWER, State Certified in Florida CFC 032631, knowing the galvanized piping to BRASS is killing people and failure of Inspectors and BOCC to recognize the dangers relative to COMMON SENSE INSTALLATIONS FOR EXTERIOR LINES OF GALVANIZED TO BRASS AND INTERIOR LINES OF GALVANIZED TO BRASS should make everyone THINK ! Because a manufacturer does not INDICATE ONE IS NOT TO USE DIELECTRIC UNIONS OUTSIDE DUE TO RAIN ALLOWING ELECTROLYTIC ACTION does NOT mean BOCC for Hillsborough can ASSUME THE DIELECTRIC UNION CAN BE USED OUTSIDE IN THE RAIN PLUS ATTACHING GALVANIZED PIPING TO BRASS HAS NEVER BEEN RECOMMENDED OR ALLOWED FOR PROFESSIONALS IN BUILDING OR INSTALLATIONS EXTERIOR OR INTERIOR "UNTIL BOCC HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FLORIDA PASSED ORDINANCE 03-6 APPENDIX B TELLING CONTRACTORS THEY CAN USE NOT ONLY GALVANIZED TO BRASS BUT ALSO USE A DIELECTRIC UNION OUTSIDE IN THE RAIN ON THE INCOMING SIDE AFTER THE METER. SUCH SMACKS OF CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE AND PURE STUPIDITY --- BECAUSE A MANUFACTURER DOES NOT SAY YOU CAN OR CANNOT INSTALL THE DIELECTRIC UNION OUTSIDE YOU "ASSUME" SUCH CAN BE DONE WHEN IN FACT THE VERY ACTION KILLS PEOPLE OR CREATES TOXIC REACTIONS TO SUPER RUST/IRON . IT IS YOUR DUTY TO LOOK, FIND AUTHORITY FOR DISSIMAL METALS CONNECTED WITH OR WITHOUT DIELECTRIC UNIONS OUTSIDE TO BRASS AND ESPECIALLY INSIDE HOMES, BUILDINGS, OFFICES, SCHOOLS, JAILS, PRISONS, COUNTY BUILDINGS IN FLORIDA ! NEWS FLASH: Someone KNOWN TO ME in this thread have lost a Parent or Worker to Hemochromatosis and my advice would be to check WHERE THE PERSON WORKED OR LIVED under sinks and especially Kitchen areas for Galvanized Piping attached to BRASS as before the thread started NO ONE TOLD THEM ABOUT HOW DANGEROUS AND TOXIC THIS RUST/IRON CAN BE TO HUMANS OF ALL AGES AND ANIMALS OR PETS. Check with competent legal counsel as the Statute of Limitations MAY HAVE JUST STARTED EVEN IF THE PERSON DIED FROM TOXIC RUST 10 YEARS AGO WHEN THAT PERSON DID NOT KNOW OF THIS KILLER. It is possible to seek damages may start when this THREAD STARTED and you learned of the cause of the death of that person who was your Mother or Sister.

Thank you Mr. Whitley for the e-mail dated February 10, 2012 in which you clearly defined the questions you wanted an answer for in CRM - Case 39398 dated February 7, 2012. Hillsborough County's response to the questions below presumes the questions pertain to construction and construction related products, or materials. The answers reflect that hypothesis. Mr. Whitley’s first question; 1) Can one use the Watts Dielectric Union outside when the piping and union is exposed to RAINWATER ? Answer: NO for the reasons stated by professionals below. Hillsborough County’s response; Yes, Watts Dielectric Unions can be installed outside. Watts Manufacturing specifications don’t denote in-door or out-door installation only. Mr. Whitley second question;
Page 14 of 30
2) Can BOCC stop confirming specific items of dissimilar metals can be attached or not attached based especially on MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS "NOT STATING IT IS FOR EXTERIOR OR INTERIOR USE SUCH AS THE DIELECTRIC UNIONS OR DIELECTRIC NIPPLES"? Answer: NO as it can cause toxic rust and kill people, animals and pets. Hillsborough County’s response; The Hillsborough County BOCC don’t confirm construction related products or materials used in construction activities. Products and materials used in construction activities are under the authority Florida Building Commission.

CAN MANUFACTURER INSTRUCTIONS MISS CRITICAL ADVICE FOR ALL EXAMPLES OF JOINING DISSIMILAR METALS AND TOXIC RESULTS WHICH CAN KILL ? Importance: High
Mr. Dicecco: Dan is a Technology man at Watts PLUS he is familiar with the fact that apparently no one did any research on the necessity to SEAL any Dielectric Union used on exterior so we are sharing this information relative to Hemochromatosis or Toxic Iron/Rust as a killer of humans, animals and pets plus the undeniable fact BOCC has made up County Ordinance 03-6 Appendix B telling people to install a dielectric union on incoming galvanized attached to Brass of a backflow assembly or water shutoff under sinks. BOTH are WRONG ! I discussed with Dan briefly how the TECHS or design professionals for Watts visited former CEO Sweeney at Target Marketing in 2001 and after the meeting were shipped two 975XL Wilkins RP's by me personally so they could design and come up with the 919. Watts also brought one model to Tampa and met with me at IHOP to review changes after we told Watts the checks were going to FOUL in the present configuration length for operation. The information was proven by FCCCHR inspections immediately afterward and modifications made to the new model including rounding of edges to tear up the "O" ring which slides. Basic Questions: 1)Can one use the Watts Dielectric Union outside when the piping and union is exposed to RAINWATER ? Answer: NO for the reasons stated by professionals below.
Page 16 of 30
2) Can BOCC stop confirming specific items of dissimilar metals can be attached or not attached based especially on MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS "NOT STATING IT IS FOR EXTERIOR OR INTERIOR USE SUCH AS THE DIELECTRIC UNIONS OR DIELECTRIC NIPPLES"? Answer: NO as it can cause toxic rust and kill people, animals and pets. SOLUTIONS: The basic problem is WATTS should have this information in MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS which it does not so BOCC ERRED in not checking further as Manufacturers Instructions DO NOT COVER EVERYTHING as in this case. FOR DAN: My compliments to present CEO OF WATTS, you really need to take this information direct to the top and require your staff to verify and correct ALL shipments by attaching an adhesive NOTICE relative to DO NOT USE THIS OUTSIDE ON PIPING WITHOUT SEALING FROM ALL RAIN OR MOISTURE. For BOCC Hillsborough County, Florida and ELECTED OFFICIALS LEGISLATIVE DELEGATIONS PLUS GOVERNOR: The basic ERRORS exposed by dissimilar metals attached to homes involving galvanized piping to brass items is inexcusable and inspectors plus BOCC cannot hide their heads in the sand and not realize what is out there visible to ALL and confirming the DEADLY TOXIC RUST AND IRON being fed unsuspecting children, infants, adults, animals and pets WHILE OFFICIALS THINK RUTH DELAMATER BUNDY, WHISTLEBLOWER AND PROFESSIONAL WHO DISCOVERED THIS KILLER IN THIS COUNTY IS SOME INSANE WOMAN ! She is telling YOU and all she can that there is a DANGER IN ALL BUILDINGS, HOMES, JAILS, PRISONS, SCHOOLS, COLLEGES AND IT IS NOT ONLY HEMOCHROMATOSIS BUT DEATHS FROM EXTREME BACTERIA OR LEGIONELLA ON FAUCET AERATOR AND SHOWER HEADS ! NOT CLEANED FOR YEARS FOLKS EVEN IN YOUR OWN HOMES ! My partner Ruth discovered this Killer problem with galvanized attached to brass shutoffs and assemblies or other brass items sold in my industry. She also is the whistleblower who told all who would listen or had e-mail that all faucet aerator and
Page 17 of 30
shower heads are full of bacteria thus require special cleaning by soaking for two hours in super solutions if not standard full strength liquid chlorine bleach MONTHLY ! Ruth DeLaMater Bundy, at age 82 reacts super violently to TOXIC RUST/IRON and it does KILL people through liver, spleen, heart and other organs shutting down. Special medical procedures must kick in and in this county you do not want to know what we see constantly indicating such Toxic levels, all because NO ONE CHECKED WITH MEDICAL OR OTHER PROFESSIONALS thinking perhaps the manufacturer instructions WOULD COVER THIS KILLER by not allowing Dielectric Unions or even DIELECTRIC NIPPLES to be used outside where rain can cancel them out and cause rust. NO ONE ASKED IF THEY CAN OR SHOULD USE DIELECTRIC UNIONS OUTSIDE WHEN IT RAINS AND MOISTURE FORMS ON ALL PIPING ? NO ONE ASKED PROFESSIONALS SUCH AS RUTH OR RALPH CHARLES WHITLEY, SR. CFC032631 IF YOU CAN MAKE CONNECTIONS WITH GALVANIZED PIPING DIRECT TO BRASS, COPPER OR OTHER DISSIMILAR METALS ? See articles posted in PDF with also BOCC Ordinance 03-6 Appendix B PDF directly related to this type of question at http://www.scribd.com/ralphwhitleysr Thanks for reviewing as there are HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF VIOLATIONS MAKING IRON/RUST IN TOXIC LEVELS BECAUSE OF BOCC COUNTY ORDINANCE 03-6 OR FAILURE OF INSPECTORS TO CATCH VIOLATIONS WHICH CAN KILL !

WFTS NEWS SPECIALISTS: Exposed to weather and rain or water the dielectric union is worthless and allows rust/iron formation in galvanized piping. Dielectric Union is great INSIDE ! Again I encourage your reporters to take a magnet to the S.W. Corner of the property with a film crew or camera and place the magnet on the pipe rising up AND pipe going down toward the building. I use the $1.99 30 pound pull RED magnet from Harbor Freight at Fletcher Avenue West of Florida avenue on the South side. Also use and give out the magnets to Law Enforcement for finding PISTOLS in water. Rifles take the 150 pound magnets with a rope or string.
Page 19 of 30
Once it is confirmed GALVANIZED then your physical plant, maintenance engineer or Plumber needs to find out if that is POTABLE WATER which is being FED to all employees in water fountains or sinks/kitchens. Then you MUST immediately remove the assembly after OPENING THE CHECK VALVE to see RUST buildup on shiny stainless components like springs and discoloration of brass interior....provide incoming and outgoing BRASS piping then check the WATER AND HOT WATER HEATER HOT WATER WITH A WHITE SINK OR MILK PLASTIC JUG TO SEE IF THE WATER IS BROWN....such denotes ANODE ROD deterioration and either replace the anode rod or hot water heater plus check piping for galvanized at the heater. I would REPLACE THE BACKFLOW ASSEMBLY ALREADY CONTAMINATED WITH A NEW ONE, PUT IN A WYE STRAINER TO CATCH METAL OR RUST, MAKE BRASS CONNECTION WITH RUBBER GASKET DIRECTLY TO OUTGOING OF METER AND ON OTHER SIDE DOWNSTREAM IT WILL GO TO PVC PIPING. AT OUTGOING 90 DEGREE ELL I WOULD PUT IN A TEE, USE FLUSH BUSHING REDUCED TO 1/2 INCH THEN BRASS NIPPLE AND TEE AND ON ONE SIDE OF THE TEE HAVE A PRV SET AT 125 PSI AND ON THE OTHER SIDE USE A DOLE FP-35 FREEZE PROTECTION UNIT PLUS AFTER EACH UNION HAVE AN ADDITIONAL BALL VALVE UP AND DOWN TO ISOLATE THE WATER IN THE BUILDING AND KEEP YOU OR ANYONE OUT OF THE METER BOX.. THEN I WOULD HAVE A CHAIN LINK FENCE AND PADLOCK ON ENTRY DOOR ALL AROUND THE ASSEMBLY TO PROTECT THE BUILDING OCCUPANTS FROM ANY TERRORIST ATTACK OR SHUTTING DOWN OF WATER. Same drill at your homes folks, piping under sinks coming through the cabinets will have a brass fitting for a shutoff. Place the magnet on the piping Horizontal and see if it sticks....IF SO....you have a rust factory. Easy to replace with new galvanized pipe, new female threaded coupling, new brass Close nipple then attach the brass shutoff. TOTAL ISOLATION and stopping of the rust factory. Hot water takes CPVC coupling or shutoff and Cold Water takes PVC coupling threaded female. For those already exposed to the toxic Rust, review HEMOCHROMATOSIS as there are medical tests which will confirm your liver is overloaded then
Page 20 of 30
ALSO medical procedures to reverse or take away the iron quickly and efficiently. Of special danger are infants, young children and old people like ME ! Sorry we are staying INSIDE recovering from cancer surgery at USF special surgical areas with super dirty faucet aerators and potential galvanized PIPES. You can look at your own Aerator, Shower head and see the buildup then soak the units in full strength liquid chlorine bleach for 2 hours. Little BAGGIE OR ZIP LOCK SANDWICH BAG can hold enough liquid chlorine bleach attached to submerge the aerator or shower head holes for 2 hours then rinse the aerator and shower head and mark the calendar for next month to do the same thing. YOU CAN LEAVE IT ATTACHED TO PIPING AND NOT HAVE TO BECOME A PLUMBER !

Returning 020712 for more surgery on top of head and left neck so I avoid appearances and GOING OUT to stop risk of infection UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY. Check it out quickly at home and in the work areas. It could save a lot of lives...then think about the schools, Colleges, military facilities and hotels, motels...etc.. And ask the news director to check his own home ! Here is a picture of the GENIUS PROFESSIONAL who discovered this Killer and errors of the BOCC because SHE has a toxic reaction to Iron in water, food or drink, let alone even Vitamin Supplements. She made the Discovery and reviewed what is perhaps killing people Nationwide since 1945 until 2008 or right now in this County where she points out the super toxic piping at schools and even your News Building.

Plus it may have been killing people for years and years until SHE Discovered and proved it is sadly killing people WORLDWIDE ! Call her 813-286-2333 as I have recommended Ruth for the Nobel Prize for Medicine 2012 PLUS Freedom Medal for the United States Congress action for her discovery and simple solution to stopping the Killing of humans, pets and animals.

REMEMBER SOMETHING FOLKS --- A Dielectric Union has threaded Galvanized and threaded BRASS or Copper and threaded Galvanized. Such would MANDATE a galvanized nipple on galvanized side then a brass nipple on BRASS SIDE...some idiot plumbers or workers attach a galvanized nipple on the brass female threaded connection into the brass of the assembly which borders on CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE the same level as the COUNTY COMMISSION making up the COUNTY ORDINANCE 03-6 APPENDIX B allowing galvanized piping DIRECT TO THE OUTGOING OF THE ASSEMBLY which is indeed CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE IF NOT ACCESSORY TO MURDER since the people are dying from the TOXIC RUST/IRON in the potable water. IJNSPECTORS DO ONLY SEE THE DIELECTRIC NIPPLE ON INCOMING AND DO NOT CHECK THE NIPPLE GOING ON THE BRASS SIDE THUS WORKERS INSER CHEAPER GALVANIZED NIPPLE WHICH BREAKS DOWN. CHECK IT OUT ! GALVANIZED AND BRASS DIELECTRIC UNIONS ARE USELESS AND CREATE TOXIC RUST AND IRON OUTSIDE WHEN IN RAIN. http://www.copper.org/applications/architecture/arch_dhb/fundamentals/arch_considerations.html
Fundamentals: Architectural Considerations
Weathering, Corrosion, Staining, Substrate, Solder, Sealants
One of the most important issues concerning the use of copper is the chemical reaction between copper and other materials. Chemical reactions are responsible for corrosion, staining, and even the green patina that develops on copper surfaces over time.
Page 25 of 30
Weathering and Patination:
The oxidation process that gives copper its characteristic green patina is a result of exposure to an acidic atmosphere. The process is, therefore, faster in some metropolitan, marine, and industrial areas, where higher concentrations of pollutants exist. When acidic moisture comes in contact with exposed copper surfaces, it reacts with the copper to form copper sulfate. The acid is neutralized during the reaction with the copper. This patina eventually covers the surface and adheres tightly to it, thus providing a protective layer against further weathering.
All metals have a property called nobility. It is a measure of a metal's resistance to corrosion when in contact with another metal. A greater relative difference in nobility between the two metals in contact indicates a greater corrosion potential. Table 1.1.4 ranks the most common metals used in construction in increasing nobility, called the galvanic number.
Table 1.1.4 - The Nobility of Common Metals 1. Aluminum 2. Zinc 3. Steel 4. Iron 5. Stainless Steel - Active 6. Tin 7. Lead 8. Copper 9. Stainless Steel - Passive
When dissimilar metals are in contact with one another in the presence of an electrolyte, galvanic action occurs, resulting in the deterioration of the metal with the lower galvanic number. The electrolyte may be rain water running from one surface to another, or moisture from the air containing enough acid to cause it to act as an electrolyte.
Page 26 of 30
Since copper has one of the highest galvanic numbers or nobility of the active metals, it will not be harmed by contact with any of them. It will, however, cause corrosion of the other metals if in direct contact. The solution is to prevent such direct contact with the use of separating materials, such as specific paints or gaskets. It is not necessary to isolate copper from lead, tin or stainless steel under most circumstances. The principal metals of concern in terms of direct contact are aluminum and zinc. If paints or coatings are used for isolation, they must be compatible with both metals. Bituminous or zinc chromate primers can be used between copper and aluminum. Either of these or a red lead primer can be effective in separating copper from iron and other ferrous metals. Taping or gasketing with nonabsorptive materials or sealants are effective methods of separating copper from all other metals. In areas with severe exposure, lead or similar gasketing materials should be used, except between copper and aluminum. Regardless of the method used to separate the metals, wash from copper surfaces should be prevented from draining onto exposed aluminum. Traces of copper salts in the wash may accelerate corrosion of the aluminum. Another type of corrosion, which affects copper, is caused by the flow of acidic water concentrated on a small area of copper. This type, often called "erosion corrosion", occurs when rain falls on a non-copper roof such as tile, slate, wood, or asphalt. The acidic water is not neutralized as it flows over the inert material. When water, collected over a large surface, is diverted or collected by a relatively small copper flashing or gutter, the copper may deteriorate before it develops a protective patina. Another type of corrosion occurs at the drip edge of inert roofing material conducting water into a copper gutter or valley. If shingles rest directly on the copper, the corrosive effect is amplified because moisture is held along the edge by capillary action resulting in "line-corrosion". The solution is to raise the lower edge of the shingles with a cant strip, or to provide a replaceable reinforcing strip between the shingles and the copper.
The wash of water over copper surfaces can have additional impact. Moisture in contact with copper surfaces tends to pick up small quantities of copper salts. When this moisture contacts porous material, such as marble or limestone, it is absorbed. As the moisture evaporates, it leaves behind the copper salts as a stain on these materials. The green stain is particularly visible on light colored surfaces. The condition does not occur with heavy rains or similar rapid run-off, since the dwell time of the moisture on the copper is short and little copper salt is picked up. Staining results from the slow bleeding action of copper laden moisture.
Page 27 of 30
There are a number of ways to reduce staining or its visual impact. Two common methods are: collecting run-off in gutters and directing it away from the building via downspouts; and designing drip edges to a minimum of one inch, helping reduce the amount of copper laden moisture that comes into contact with material below. Coating the adjacent surface of the porous material with a clear silicone sealant can reduce staining by minimizing the amount of moisture absorbed into the surface. The use of lead-coated copper results in a black or gray stain, which may blend better with some building materials.
The preparation of the substrate onto which copper will be applied depends in part on the substrate selected and the copper application. A number of considerations, however, must always be taken into account. In selecting the substrate, a key consideration is the method of attachment of the copper. All applications that rely on nails or screws to attach the copper or cleats to the underlying structure require a nailable deck, nailing strips within the deck, or wood blocking at specific locations. Such applications include standing seam roofs, batten seam roofs, flat seam roofs, continuous edge strips and cleats, and flashings around roof penetrations. Regardless of the attachment method used, the structural integrity of the substrate should not be compromised. It must be able hold the roof under sustained design wind conditions, as well as to conform to all other required codes and standards. The most common substrate for copper is wood, usually 1/2" to 3/4" plywood. Lumber should be kiln-dried and laid with all joints true and even to provide a smooth surface. It is recommended that wood be allowed to weather for a few days after installation. During this period it should be protected from rain, allowing it to conform to atmospheric temperature and moisture level, while settling into place. There have been many recent developments in fire retardant treated (FRT) plywood and lumber. Most of these products use wood or plywood that is pressure-impregnated with chemical salts in water solution to inhibit combustion. Many of these salts are corrosive to copper, as well as other metals and materials. If leaching of theses salts brings them into contact with the copper, corrosion will occur. This is particularly likely in areas with high humidity, if condensation occurs, or if water is introduced during construction or at a later time. Any areas where salt laden moisture can collect then evaporate, thereby increasing the concentrations of salts, will accelerate the corrosion process. For a complete and updated report on Fire Rated Plywood and Corrosion contact CDA. Other materials used as substrates for copper include: concrete, brick, masonry units, terra cotta, and stucco. The guidelines discussed above apply to these materials as well. Smooth, dry surfaces, compatibility with copper, and provision for fasteners are all required for an acceptable substrate.

Sheet and strip copper applications in construction are inevitably required to provide some level of resistance to water penetration. Anything that can cause punctures or openings in the copper membrane should be avoided. Copper roofs, valley flashings, and gutter linings should always be applied on a smooth, dry, stable surface with no projecting nail heads or other imperfections. Movement in the substrate should be accommodated by properly designed expansion joints. In such applications, an approved underlayment, usually saturated felt, must be applied to the substrate. The felt acts as a cushion for the copper sheets. A sheet of rosin-sized building paper should be inserted between the copper and the underlayment. This will prevent bonding between the two surfaces that would otherwise restrict the thermal movement of the copper. The only exceptions to this requirement are applications where the copper is not intended to move, not even under thermal stress. For example, continuous cleats and edge strips are nailed down, usually in a staggered pattern of nails 3 inches on center, to limit movement.
Solder and Sealants:
Copper construction methods have traditionally relied on solder to ensure water-tightness and to strengthen joints and seams. The solder used is common 50-50 tin-lead bar solder for uncoated copper, and 60-40 tin-lead for lead-coated copper. It is typically applied to mechanically fastened or formed, rigid joints. Soldered seams and joints are permanent; they should last the life of the copper. Continuous, long runs of soldered seams should be avoided to limit stress fractures. In the weathering process, the lead contained in solder turns gray. Exposed solder in the finished joints can be minimized with the use of blind soldering. In this technique, solder is applied to the back or concealed edge of copper surfaces. An alternative to solder, where its additional strength is not required, is the use of sealants. Sealant filled joints have been used successfully for standing seam and batten seam roofing applications where roof slopes are less than three inches per foot. Sealants can also be used in joints that are primarily designed to accommodate thermal movement of the copper. The sealants used should be tested by the manufacturer and designated as compatible for use with copper. Many elastomeric polyurethane, silicone, butyl, polysulfide or other inorganic or rubber based sealants have shown acceptable performance. Acrylic, neoprene, and nitrile based sealants have been observed to actively corrode copper. The use of such sealants is, therefore, not recommended.
