Hi, Manish. CPVC is widely used and is not believed to be harmful. Galvanized pipe is not considered satisfactory for drinking water these days -- mostly because galvanized pipes eventually rust through with pinhole leaks, and clog from rust and calcium deposits. Plus, galvanized pipe is often used in conjunction with copper pipe, which can cause galvanic hydrolysis problems. If you tell us what your plumber actually said, we may be able to comment on it. Good luck.

I want to know which is a better option between GI pipe and CPVC pipeline. I am re-doing my bathrooms. The old GI pipeline is 10 years old and has leakage problem.
