me again with pictures of my water lines replacement job.
first picture: beginning at the pressure tank.
you can see the leftover 100 foot roll of 3/4" tubing leaning against the pressure tank.
second picture: showing at the right, the line from the pressure tank feeding to the lines to the kitchen, and at the left, feeding down to the water heater.
.notice that at the water heater I re-used the brass unions for future replacement of the water heater.
drop lines to the wash machine, (just to the right of the dryer vent pipe) we used 1/2" cpvc for this in order to use the cpvc solderless adapters into the brass shut-off valves.
distribution lines to the vanity (left) and the toilet .
the next picture will show the shower lines to the right of the toilet lines.
the large pvc pipes are from the sump pump.
If you are ever tempted to change out your copper to PEX, a word of caution.
If the lines are going to be exposed like these, it is very difficult to take the tubing off of the roll and straighten it.
I think if I ever did this again, I would use cpvc tubing for any straight runs that are going to be exposed.
I don't know if you can make it out, but we put in lots of wooden cross pieces and used extra pipe hangers to straighten the tubing out.
we are very happy with the overall results, though,.
