Ryan from Pa writes,

What precautions should I take when using Boracare near plumbing? Pex and copper supply lines?

I plan on applying Boracare in my basement to subfloor, joists, sill, beam, etc. There are numerous areas where the supply lines will be in close proximity or in the actual way. How concerned should I be about the Boracare impacting these lines?


Bora-Care will not harm the copper lines or pex lines, however sometimes the Bora-care can turn the copper a slight green color, but it does not deteriorate the copper lines in any way.
