AJ - CPVC is a lousy product from all current literature, in trades.
- but some States have less than adequate building standards // so almost anything will fly
- not so Free, in Canada // our Building inspectors, or strict on this stuff

-----------------------------------

SharkBite fittings come with a PEX stiffener pre-loaded into the fitting for PEX, PE-RT and HDPE. The PEX stiffener does not need to be removed for Copper or CPVC applications. Cut the pipe as cleanly and squarely as possible. Be sure the pipe is free of scratches and debris

MOE - study chart, on top right of link...

PS - It would be nicer to use a SharkBite below the floor, and not have any CPVC in your hidden wall cavity.

Cut the cpvc , two 90's and your moving forward

I don't blame you AJ! I'm claustrophobic too!

I would bet most houses around here are cpvc or similar - particularly the houses in this neighborhood as they were all built by the same guy.

As you say - I think it will last as well if I: Use the primer (purple I think) and then the cement (orange I think) and fit it to the lip should be ok....but will think on it over night. I can at least get the holes drilled etc...

Then shut off the water to the house when I am ready.....complete it then turn it back on. Let it sit for a day or so before I begin the install of the shower pan and walls. Give me a chance to see if it leaks, or seeps.

FYI - I did install a simple house filter- cutting into existing cpvc line coming in and connecting it to the filter. That was 10 years ago and no leaks. Not a great professional job but it is working.

YAY! Not as complicated as Modm's plumbing fix but workable.

It probably isn't as complicated as I am making it out - just stuff I do not have experience doing and I worry about messing it up. Even if I am trying to sell the house still want to make sure it is the best I can do and not cause the next guy problems.

Me , I would cut a hole big enough to get my arm in to feel around , if it was solvable i would cut a nice size square that would allow the re-plumb and move on.

If for some reason it is a real pain to get through that stud just move the water lines to a wall which would be simpler to plumb

Also be 'n' it was a one piece and now it's not - how will the floor drain work out ? will it need to be moved to line up the new shower floor ?

PEX pipes cost a little bit more than CVPC, but they have a 25-year warranty. And unlike CPVC, if there is a leak, PEX's warranty covers the damage to your home so you don't have to go through your homeowners insurance.
Thanks everyone for advice and information!

Doc - what you said to Alan - is what my wife said to me

So from all the conversations.....I still need to see if I stay with cpvc or convert over to pex under the house. We are on a well, has not leaked in almost 11 years so could stay with cpvc….but good arguments to go to pex.

Alan - there is nothing under the house where those plumbing lines go up. After I read the posts, I went back under the house (was getting dark) so I could turn on the bathroom lights and see it shining through. No wires or other items except the pipes and insulation.

One line - cold water will be easy-ish. The hot water is harder as they Teed off and crossed over the cold water.

Beau - if I go with SharkBite to convert over to pex is this what I am looking at for the conversion parts? https://www.lowes.com/pd/SharkBite-1...ENqg&gclsrc=ds

Here is what I found while under the house -

It is a 3 block at that section of the house (7 block at other end). So 24" to the joists from ground.

And here is the dimensions from up top and plan to do:



Depending on how much room I really have the 3/4" may go up to an 1" if I have room on the 2 x 4.

I could go on other side of joist but that would not be plumb with how the shower head would drop down....but if I go with PEX not as big a deal.

I told my wife I will start tomorrow - but she has to stand in line to get my beer mug! She goes oh....ok.

Plumbers warn of CPVC piping problems

https://www.clickorlando.com/news/20...ping-problems/

Plumbers recommend knowing what pipes are in your walls
A pipe that builders are using inside homes more and more is coming under fire by the people who know best -- professional plumbers.


[WEB EXTRA: CPVC information | PEX information ]

Plumbers are warning you to know what's inside your walls no matter how old or new your home is.

Plumbers told Local 6 that CPVC pipes, which are plastic with glued joints, are a ticking time bomb because it's not if a leak is going to happen, but when it will happen.

Bernice Dockery is dealing with the problem right now.

"Improve their product, the material is no good," Dockery said, referring to the CPVC pipes behind her walls that were installed 14 years ago.

The leaky pipe in the ceiling stretches from her bathroom into the bedroom.

"When a pipe goes in a home it's suppose to last," Dockery said.

Chris Rainaldi of Rainaldi Home Services said that's the problem -- CPVC pipes don't last.

"Over a period of time, it gets brittle and cracks and breaks and the glue joints continue to deteriorate through the pipe and go bad," Rainaldi said.


Plumbers said Florida's heat and chlorine in the water is also bad for CPVC pipes.

So how common is this problem?

"With CPVC, this is a very common thing. CPVC is one we see on a regular basis," Rainaldi said.

In fact, 40 percent of homes re-piped by Rainaldi Home Services had CPVC pipes.

Liam Cuddy's company, Emerald Plumbing, does 12-15 re-pipes a week. He said they see the same thing.

"It's a product we know is failing. The manufacturer knows its failing," Cuddy said.

The manufacturer even cut CPVC's warranty from 25 years down to 10, and that only covers the pipes, not any water damage.

That was a red flag for Kevin Jones, who had his home re-piped, but he said he was forced by his insurance company to use CPVC pipes.

"I think people should have that choice and I can't understand why insurance companies are dictating what homeowners have to put in their homes," Jones said.


Emerald plumbing did the install.

"When we do one in CPVC, in my heart and soul I know they are going to have a problem," Cuddy said.

The problems with CPVC pipes can range from:

Turning off the valve by the toilet and having it snap off in the wall
Mopping your floor and hitting the connection, causing it to snap
To be fair, some plumbing companies prefer CPVC. Ferran Services & Contracting uses it on a regular basis.

"It is a good product, its one of the most durable, as long as it's installed properly," Jesse Crawford of Ferran said.


Local 6 said to Crawford, "This really is no surprise when I tell you: You have got competitors who are really adamant about NOT using CPVC."

Crawford says, "Not at all, it's still written in the plumbing code book that we can use it."

But Dockery said she wishes she didn't use CPVC and said she feels angry.

According to both Rainaldi and Cuddy, a pipe called PEX is a better option. They said it's not as rigid or brittle.

PEX pipes cost a little bit more than CVPC, but they have a 25-year warranty. And unlike CPVC, if there is a leak, PEX's warranty covers the damage to your home so you don't have to go through your homeowners insurance.
I would not disagree which one is better , but his plumb job will last longer than the rest of the plumbing in the house. His job would should not be disservice to his buyer. If Cpvc is such a lousy product that he may want to disclose to potential buyers that they are sitting on a time bomb.

If I'm at home on dial up I see nothing sometimes not even the code--if I'm at the library I see the picture.

I forget what Denny asked me--I'd answer if I could remember the question but since I'm evidently being very senile today--bye bye ya'll...

My understanding pex is more flexible so can have some play.

Then up above floor and behind shower wall - it will be pex. I would have to buy pex crimper, quick look around $80 at Lowes. Home Depot around $60.


Insulation - yep outside wall. At first I thought it was just jammed up inside...I pulled it down and still missing some. Will have to buy some!

Ha home renovation adds up a bit at a time

Sounds like a plan... I didn't mention Pex cause didn't know if you wanted to spend extra $$ on crimper?

Here's retrofit conversion of our Master bathtub to walk-in shower 2012 project. Changed from copper to Pex plumbing for new shower piping. Done by contractor while I was working on ship out of town. DW would send daily photo updates:

Pex Piping Install Including Surge Pipes, plus Vacuum Breaker (for longer wash hose to bath Dobes)






Finished Shower Installation





Pex tubing is supposedly freeze resistant, not freeze proof, even if not drained. This is important for outside walls and in crawlspaces. (Ask me how I know, after Houston deep freezes in late 80's, with frozen outer wall PVC water piping?) Pex has "potential life span" of 100 years, but I'll believe that after 2090!

IMO, that would definitely be the the best solution is to reroute piping beneath subfloor to come up through base 2x4. Remember, if you notch out 2x4s, put reinforcement plates to span openings after pipes installed, to maintain strength of wood.



If you have access underneath, there must be a basement below?

- behind a closed wall, SharkBites can't be replaced, without opening up the wall // if they ever leaked...which is remotely rare, but still a small risk

SD - Yeah no slab here most are on crawl spaces. This side of the house is 2 - 3 foot high underneath so some working space but not the best. Yep thought about the metal reinforcing as well!

Beau67 - I did see those sharkbites or at least came across as I was watching videos....but with your video maybe not so bad. We have cpvc pipes. Which uses the "glue" to hold them together.

AJ - Hopefully, I will not have to raise the floor to get above the 2x4...One that would definitely be above my paygrade - two the step into the shower might be a problem then.

Also yes original plumbing - only reason I can think of is the floor joist below aligns about 2 or so inches into the 2x4 frame.

Closeups of the pipes:

Side view coming up from floor next to the 2x4 frame.


Top view of pipes.


Left Pipe a pain also as it is almost or is in line with the vertical 2x4....


Shower Valve that will be replaced - guess would have to cut and replace. - Maybe use sharkbites or just attach back with correct adhesive.


The underneath pipes would have to be re-worked as well.

So for now in holding pattern until I figure out if I can do it - or need to have a real plumber come in....

Can't blame me on this one. We were clear this week. It's supposed to snow today, but they keep pushing back when it will start coming down, which usually means the storm will miss us.

Anyway, seems like I remember CMC talking snow a day or two ago? Maybe it's that storm.

Or maybe you've been bad and this one has shown up just for you as a punishment. Yeah, that seems the most likely explanation to me.

I am missing what you are saying Doc about - you can change the amount of fall sometimes

Have 48X34 pan. The width is dead (you know what) 48" the depth is 32.75" so not really 34".

Stud to stud is also right on 48" so will be a tight fit but should be ok. The water lines coming up are in the way as shown. Stud to stud area has to be free of obstruction. The 2x4 frame on bottom is almost over a joist. I think it is 2 inches I did not measure while under there. From the water lines entering the bottom, I have 3 finger widths to the joist. So just a bit into the 2x4 frame.

I would have to rerun some of the tubing underneath and drill up through the other side of the 2x4....unless I slot the floor board and 2X4 with hole or jig saw....
Then loosing the hold clamps below and see if there is a that much movement...do not think so.

If you let the pipe going up to the shower head go more plumb you can see it would align into the base 2x4...where it should have been.

The one good thing is the floor board area is level at least with the 2 foot level I have....or at least level enough I doubt I could make it more level with a shower bed.
If this is the original plumbing then there is probably a good reason the pipes do not come up through the base 2*4. Would it be easier to raise the shower floor? notch the 2*4 and 90 the 2 water feed lines to get everything lined up proper.

melbrod Horsie doesn't like donkeys. Plus he may not chase dogs. Do you like the quarter horse type?

He's cute, but...
