In response to Re: Plumbing in Cramped Places

: We recently removed all the galvanized plumbing from our 1924 vintage downstairs bathroom and have
: began planning the risers to the new fixtures. Unfortunately the crawl space underneath the bathroom
: tapers down to approximately 14-16 inches at the wall where the risers are needed and to make matters
: worse the DWV lines box in this area making soldering nearly impossible. From the looks of it
: all the original plumbing was completed before the floor was laid down.

: Is it ok to snake 1/2 in. coiled copper or PEX tubing for the risers and then tee into the
: supply line and fixtures?

Patrick,
Yes. Make sure you are using the proper connection between the two pipes. Inspectors like to see the soft copper bent using tubing benders. PEX would be easy to use.
