    Default Hot water pipe insulation - asbestos?

    Hi All,

    Thanks in advance for reading this thread. I am wondering if you can advise me whether the insulation on the hot water pipe in the below photos is asbestos.







    I am located in New Jersey and the house was built in 1968.

    Thanks!

    It looks like it may contain asbestos. I would recommend testing to confirm.

    I'd say that is a very real possibility.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your responses. Guess I will hire a lead and asbestos inspector in addition to the house inspector for this house to make sure.

    Best Regards!
