In response to Re: CPVC HOT WATER LINES

: I just bought a old farm house that the water heater has been removed because it was rusted out. I want to install new plumbing in the house because it is only 1/2" CPVC (white plastic pipe) though out the house. I read in a previous message on the board that you cant use this kind of pipe for hot water lines. Can I use the white plastic pipe for my new hot water heater or should I use copper?
: Thanks in advance.....

CPVC piping for domestic hot water
is not white, but a bit off white.

PVC piping is white and can not be used for hot.

If you are doing repiping, you may want to put the correct sizes in. It's the time spent, not the cost of the pipe.

I would use a 24" copper or stainless steel braided flex between the CPVC and the water heater. Terry
