Plumbing stollen - while fixing what should I do?
I purchased a cabin, and this summer, a thief broken into the basement, and stole the copper tubing from the ceiling of the basement.
So, while I'm having the copper tubing replaced - are there things I should consider adding?
The water line into the house is 3/4 inch pipe, but all pipes in the house are 1/2 inch. Should I add some 3/4 copper tubing to the basement, to help take a shower and flush the toilet downstairs.
Should I add a special joint to the pipes feeding the hot water tank - so the tank could be removed. The cabin will be locked up in the winter.
Are there other 'features' I should add to the pipes to reduce shock, to ease draining.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
In short - I have plumbing fixtures to replace in the basement of a 25 year old house.
The hot water tank is electric.
Thanks for the help
