In response to Re: cpvc
Since plastic pipe of any kind has a certain amount of flexibility, it acts as a buffer against a lot of water hammer problems. But this also means that the drops in the walls can flop around and contact the walls if the insulation does not secure them properly.

: thanks for your response today from yesterdays question. I have a couple of other questions about cvpc. If properly tied down, will i have trouble with water hammer or hearing the pipes in the walls and attics. My plumber said he would tie down in the attic and put insullation in the walls.

: Also, i have a cooking island where the sink is. He said he might have to fish a smaller 3/8 line through the existing pipe. WIll this cause less water pressure.
