copper sink and standard drain pipes
 
I am in the midsts of planning the renovation for my guest bath and I am looking at installing a handmade copper sink. I know that mixing metals can cause problems and I was wondering if attaching a copper sink to your standard metal drain pipe would be an issue. I know some drain pipes are made of copper and some are not so I am just asking up front before I get started. Thanks.

i see no problems either way. i've seen steel sinks on copper drains, why would the opposite make any difference? lol
but i could be wrong, and if you do it, your home will explode in a nuclear blast!

You make a good point. Didn't really think of it that way, that part about steel sinks and copper drain pipes, not the nuclear blast part. Thanks for the helpful kick, er I mean tip. :eek:
