Comments - Plumbing--Replacing Galvanized Pipe

Sorry for my typos...I have a small laptop board.  I just need to take time to spell check or proofread.

Example:  Copper not cooper pipe

No thanks on the plumbing position unless you wanna trade for some crawlspace work.  Yuck, I hate to think about that job for me in the near future.

I know different material/methods are used in different parts of country and world.  Some for legimate reasons and some not.  I spent some time now researching cooper vs cpvc vs pex and saw many intersting info/opinions. 

Pex is just starting to be used in my area of country.  Maybe more common on west coast cause it is flexible like some of your land?  Pex needs special tool and more skill than cpvc.  I may use that on the totally demo'd mstr bath waiting for me.  I have well water which is aggresive so not copper friendly, plus the sweating thing. 

Maybe be to sum up:  Ford or Chevy

Thanks for the info!
