replce galvanized with cpvc
Posted by LJ on November 05, 2002 at 02:07:19:
I am relocating a lavatory and shower in my bathroom. The house was built in 1968 and has 1/2 inch galvanized running to the fixtures from the 3/4 inch galvanized main. In looking at the cpvc pipes, I noticed that the interior size of the 3/4 inch pipe is closer in size to the 1/2 inch galvanized than the 1/2 inch cpvc. Should I use the 3/4 inch cpvc to the fixtures or the seemingly smaller 1/2 inch? This is the first time I have used this product and I dont want to lose pressure by using too small of a pipe. Your comments would be greatly appreciated.
