|In response to Re: Repipe|
The one inch from the meter to the house is fine for up to three bathrooms. The local plumbing code in your area is a good basis for sizing. The aproximate values would allow for two bathrooms on 3/4" or one bathroom, a kitchen, washer and outside faucets on 3/4".
: The sizes you now have are very adequate. As far as the main supply goes, My expperience has been that for less than 100 feet copper is best. Over that, use PVC and increase the size. If you use PVC, then you also have to install an electrical ground rod to compensate for the loss of the metallic electrical ground. hj
: : I'm seriously considering re-piping my 1story house (from galvanized to copper) but had some questions.
: : Thanks for your help!
