I'm in a 1937 cape cod with galvanized water supply lines.
I'm planning to remodel the first floor bathroom soon, and am wondering how involved it is to run new water supply lines. My pressure isn't the best with 70 some years of buildup on the inside of these galvanized lines.
I know that a lot of people are using PVC or flex piping in lieu of copper these days. My question is, how hard would it be for someone to install this new piping themselves? My pipes all run visible to the eye in the basement. How do these new pipes tie back into my copper supply, etc?
Any good advice or literature, and even information on pricing would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
