Hi guys,

Currently have rusted galvanized fittings (Well was drilled in 1987) and am very tempted to replace them with brass or stainless when I overhaul our well. The local guys all use galvanized but some do carry brass. The pump places I call don't stock anything but galvanized it seems. What's the deal here? A lot of these stainless fittings don't cost THAT much more if you source them online. Do folks have issues getting stainless to seal or is really just a cost thing?

Which do you prefer? I'm thinking of going with stainless but some folks run into issues with galling threads. Any tips?
