|In response to Re: Copper pipes have thinned to bursting point.|
: My house was replumbed with copper 36 yrs ago. Since then there have been several leak repairs. I have noted that the last repair was on a piece repaired 10 years ago (remember this because it was our first night in the house after purchase.)
: The peices removed can be literaly rolled into a ball with your bare hands.
: I am redoing it one more time and need input.
: Should I use cpvc, or should I use copper combined with a treatment plan. Also how do I treat the water, other than cathodic. Would like the most cost effective route.
: Thank you
Greg, If you called me to replace the water lines i would use the pex water system. if it is used in your area and code permits it DO IT.Just my opinion.38years in the trade. cpvc is good also. Dale
