: : It happens all the time. Typically where they touch we solder them together so there is no abrasive movement.

: : : We are building a new home. Our plumber, who we have already went "around and around" with, has the hot and cold water lines from our daughters bathtub touching/crossing one another. My father has told my husband and I that this used to not be up to code. My uncle has also told us that this will be a problem in the future. I don't want to have to argue with the plumber about anything else if this isn't an issue. Do the newer materials used in plumbing now allow for this type of contact between the hot and cold water lines? Thank you so much for your reply... it will probably save us a lot of additional stress! Stacey

: Thank you for your reply! Our pipes are made of PVC. If you have a moment, could you please tell me what would you use to keep them removed from one another in that instance? My uncle suggested poly-propolene. Thanks again for your time!

I hope your water lines are CPVC and not PVC--PVC is not an approved material anywhere that I have ever heard of.
You can use zip ties to hold the 2 lines together.
