I am methodically replacing aging copper supply pipes with plastic as we renovate the house.

Question: Is it poor form to mix CPVC and PEX? Is a home inspector going to mark it up when we sell the house?

Code seems to be okay with it. MY OCD doesn't love the idea but my practicality does. I'd use flex for all of it but there are certain situations where a rigid, perfectly straight run of CPVC saves time, money, and effort.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
