|In response to Re: new pipe|
: Two questions.
: I am replacing very old 1/2" copper water pipe coming from my water meter. I have ok water presure. Would I gain anything from increasing the pipe size to 3/4". It is 3/4" coming out of the water meter that steps down to 1/2" after about 6".
: I am redoing a bath. Took out an old tile floor and plywood subfloor. Hardwood floor now shows. The problem now is that the toilet flange is now about 1" above the floor. As a temporary fix while remodling I have 3/4" plywood under the base of the toilet. Is there an easy way to lower the flange or am I stuck raising the floor.
a 2 bath house with kit,washer and 2 hosebibs carries 19 fixture units. a 3/4" line is required and the code states that a water service line shall be no smaller than 3/4".i always run 1" for future expansion. as far as the flange goes they have a flange called TWO FINGER FLANGE you can cut off excess pipe and slip this flange down inside to floor level.only for cast iron or dwv sch 40 pipe.
