Hello everybody,

I'm in the process of insulating and air sealing my house and have run into a question about spray foam near copper water pipes. I want to air seal the holes in the floor where the water pipes go from the basement to the main floor. In the large gaps I plan to slip foam pipe insulation or fiberglass insulation around the pipes but if gaps remain or if the gaps are fairly small can I use expanding spray foam around the pipes? Is there any concern about spray foam making contact with copper hot water pipes?

Thanks,
Dan

Not going to hurt anything.
Make sure to wear gloves,goggles and old clothes.
Once the foam gets on something it's not coming off.
