In response to Re: Re-piping a old house.
: I'm purchasing a home built in 1954. It still has the original plumbing. Nothing's really leaking...yet. I'm considering updating the plumbing before I move in. I'm not sure if I should or not. It seems like a huge expense considering nothing is leaking now.But I don't want to have to deal with it after I move all my new things into the house. What do you think. It seems like the galvanized pipes have probably lived their life expectancy. Should I re-do the plumbing?

Rachelle, are we talking domestic water? or drain lines. If we are talking water lines perhaps you could take out a section and ger a look at the inside of this pipe. A lot has to do with the water conditions and how your water is treating the galvanized pipe.Personnally if you have the money i would change the water lines and install a pressuure balance scauld guard tub/shower faucet.Dale Plumbing Service LMP
