RE: Usage of STAR section

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill, 
I can't see why you would want to bury the connection.
It seems like you're asking for corrosion problems.
However, if you are going to do that, I would use
stainless steel. The small additional cost will be
nothing compared to potential future problems from
corrosion.  My two cents worth.
