Older house. There was a cracked pipe, but since as far as we know, none of the pipes have ever been replaced, we just decided to rerun new pipe to the meter. Bad idea.
There will 10 ft of 3/4 in pvc pipe, then 5 ft of 1/2 copper, with some rigged up coupling with teflon tape and pvc cement. Either it was several shitty DIY repairs, or someone didnt know what the frick they were doing when they built this house. So we're out there, looking like a bunch of whistle dicks with a flashlight laying pipe at 11 PM.
We just said frick it and called it a night. Will finish in the AM. We just borrowed the camper shower and if we gotta shit, we'll just shite in there too.
