|In response to Re: sizing pipe correctly|
: I'm planning on replacing 70yr old galvanized pipes with copper. I picked up some 1" type M at a clearance sale.
: Do you see any problem with this scheme? Water flow or pressure? The mains pressure is approx.
Sounds like a plan to me! On a two bath home, you would need 3/4" to the water heater. The other fixtures would use a 1/2" line. The recent UPC code has charts for the type of plumbing fixture, and the distance of the piping involved. Something to consider with the pressure reducer, would be mini-resters at the dishwasher, washer and the icemaker. Terry
