I dont want to repipe the CI. I want to replace it all with PVC.
Oh, well that is super easy then, good luck!
(just kidding, you'll still need to cut out the old cast-iron and repipe it to code, and if pvc is allowed in your area underneath cast-iron then you'll need special pipe supports, and pvc-cast-iron transition couplings.....do yourself a favor and hire a plumber for this one.)
The only reason I consider doing it myself is because I've tackled things the average homeowner would not. I've gutted the whole house (except the kitchen) rewired the whole house (and yes it was inspected and passed). Remodeled the bathroom. Plumbed the house with copper. Pulled up carpet and vinyl and dyed and refinished the hard wood floors. And I did it all by reading, doing research and asking the pros, like yourselves.
