CCPVC is an easy material to work with, but unless all the pipes are increased in size from the way they are installed with the galvanized pipe, you may not realize a great increase in pressure and volume, since the CPVC has a much smaller "hole" in it than either galvanized or copper pipe.

: I have cast iron plumbing and it has about seen it's last days. I am thinking about using CPVC, if I do this how do I connect it to the cooper line that runs from under a concrete slab. Let me explain, the main supply runs from the street to the house where it goes under my garage (solid concrete) and then into the crawl space where it connects to cast iron.
