CPVC to Copper
Posted by JoeG on September 04, 2002 at 12:44:27:
Hi,

I'm remodeling my bathroom and will need to relocate some of the plumbing fixtures. Because most of the piping runs under the floor in a relatively inaccessible crawlspace (filled with fiberglass, yuk!), I'd like to completely avoid any use of a torch.

Can I connect new CPVC lines to the existing copper supply lines without having to sweat any connections? Again, since the space is not easily accessible, I want to make sure the connection will last for decades without failing. Can this be done? I hope to keep as much of the current copper supply line in place as possible, meaning I'll have to make three or four of these transitions.

Thanks!
~Joe~
