Galvanized plumbing problem
Hello all,

My problem is that the plumbing has rusted from inside and is clogging up the hot water flow to one of the bathrooms. I myself do not have the money needed for a plumber to come in and replace it all. So I have flushed the pipes at least three different ways.

My question is is their a way to add vinegar into the water while it flushes and if so how does one do so? Also any other ideas would be most welcomed.

Anything short of replacing the pipe is at best a temporary solution and you run the risk of the pipe rusting all the way through. Worst case is that it happens when your not home to notice it.
Replace sections at a time as you can afford.

To do it yourself is not that expensive and there is usually lots of help here.
