From the Ground Up: Plumbing | Plumbing | This Old House – 1

My brother and his wife are spending this weekend replacing their bathtub and shower, and there came across unforeseen problems.  Check out this article re plumbing.

‘Once, state-of-the-art in plumbing was cast-iron drains and brass supply pipes. Now, those materials have been supplanted (for the most part) by PVC plastic, copper, and flexible cross-linked polyethylene, known as PEX. But whether the pipes are plastic, metal, or a combination of the two, it’s the plumber’s skill that determines how well the system works. A lot is at stake: One leaky joint can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage. An undersize, improperly sloped drain will continually clog. And supply pipes that aren’t anchored every 6 feet or so will rattle and thump every time a faucet is turned off.’
