verbally, but I interviewed many electricians and 3 permit employees (since I was remodeling the kitchen and "touched' some of the old K&T).My experience is that most of them, when not motivated to just make money out of you, say that K&T is just fine, there are of old houses with it and you don't really see houses go up in flames around you do you?

We got a universal tub spout and a Mixet trim kit so we did not have to replace the complete valve.It seems really old and brittle, so I'm a little concerned.The advice my family once got from an electrician on this question was that if you have low amperage service and NEVER touch it, you're probably okay.It is important to check: For more on insurance issues see: True Knob & Tube Danger: Modern Rework The danger with K&T is that somebody messed with it. This particular instance created a big spark some years later as the grounded metal cable hit the now bare wire.Original K&T installers never let the wires touch except protected by ceramic tubes.
