I need to make a small addition to my plumbing to incorporate a new bathroom, what materials should I use? The house has copper pipes but most of what I see happening now are plastic pipes. Are they safe or more prone to leaks? And can you transition from copper to the plastic tubes?
Should I be considering 66 or 80 gallon heat pump water heater?
