PVC vs. Cast Iron
Posted by Elizabeth Diskin on June 14, 2001 at 10:45:00:
We bought a house build in 1928. It has cast iron and galvanized pipes. We are remodeling bath and adding a second. Plumber recommended replacing all galvanized with copper (which we agree is a good idea) and all cast iron with PVC. What do you think? Our architects think PVC will create more noise behind walls, but the plumber thinks it's the better thing to do instead of having to connect new PVC to existing cast iron at various points. (No one has said the cast iron is in bad shape.)
