Copper to Black Iron
 
I need to install a new hosebibb in my house. The existing piping system is a hodgepodge of many materials, mostly black iron. In the future, I plan on re-plumbing the entire basement in copper but my wife wants to the hosebibb now. So, to minimize rework, I wanted to run the new line to the new hosebibb in copper and make a temporary connection to the main supply nearby which is black iron. Would I use a dielectric coupling for this connection?

Thanks!
Jim

Yes, on any water connection of disimilar metal piping.
