    If you’re plumbing a water heater recirc line, it’s best to use a lined steel nipple between the tank and other plumbing. If you use brass, there is a good chance it will clog, as the water heater anode reacts with the brass and plugs it with corrosion byproduct.

    This is also being added to my pipe nipples page.
