What size of copper pipe to use?
I have a 3/4" main and water meter and 1/2" pipe off that suppling the whole house, so I can't use the shower and use water anywhere else without drastic results. Most of my piping is in a small area so I was hoping I could fix this relativly easily.
I was thinking about putting in a manifold system. The other thing I thought of was just running 3/4" pipe from the meter with 1/2" T's off that to the taps and such. Its all copper now so I was going to go with that.
A straight run would be easier but would I get the results the same as a manifold?
Should I run 3/4" to the hotwater heater or 1/2"? I was going to leave the 1/2" coming out of the heater to the house.
