blew a joint in black pipe elbow, and flange looked impossible to get lose from black pipe elbow. But a ox-ace torc did it....broke free! Saved $170 for a new flange. Now debating using pipe (black or bronze) vrs a one piece bronze mixing elbow (also @$170)....

Cost wise = Black

Stainless does not like hot salty water

Bronze is expensive (don't use brass}
