|In response to Re: Mixing PEX and copper OR redo completely with PEX|
Deciding between a manifold system or a standard pipeing layout, is choice too.
Either way, it should be fine.
: I like the idea of using PEX because I have no experience with copper. Currently the plumbing is all copper inside the walls and it seems to be in good shape.
: My question is:
: wherever there is existing copper plumbing close to new fixtures (typically with 5 feet) should I:
: divert the copper lines to the new fixture with PEX?
: divert the copper lines to the new fixture with NEW copper?
: completely redo all lines with PEX from a new manifold and using home-run circuits?
: Access is not a big problem since this is a 3-story house and most work is on the 2nd and 3rd floor. I will be removing lots of drywall and floor sheathing anyway. Most plumbing is on the 2nd floor and I have easy underfloor access from ground floor unfinished storage rooms. I was thinking of putting a new Vanguard manabloc manifold in the utility room on the ground floor.
