I am not a Plumber.
I have an old house [in Phoenix AZ terms] it was built around 1966
"before building inspectors"! We acquired it in 1987.
Sadly the house was built by a wood shop teacher and I won't bore you with all the horror stories! [for example he used interior grade sheathing for the roof deck!]
My plumbing is Galvanized pipe [yuk]
I dread the day I need to re-plumb the house ...........
ok, here are my questions...........
If I were to connect a water pressure gauge at the front of the house garden valve above the main shut off valve, what would the acceptable range of pressure be?
If I then hook up an adaptor and measure the pressure at say the kitchen faucet what pressure value should I expect to read?
I do acknowledge I have some flow limitations at some areas and I suspect it's due to the galvanized pipes being restricted. I did a repair and used CPVC with great success.
When the time comes to re-plumb the house would pex be a good choice?
The runs can go into the attic and fortunately the bathrooms are next to each other.
I do not know if any supply runs are embedded in the concrete slab.
I do believe though that I could get most of the runs via the attic and actually have minimal wall demolition.
For now though, I'm interested in pressure values in a residential home.
Thanks , and I did do a forum search but did not find answers to my questions
