Dumb question alert !!

4 posts in this topic

I need to replumb my Mobile home at the lake. I want to take out ALL of the copper and pex fixes and replace with all pex.

I have a 3/4" feed line and then it goes to 1/2". At the faucets it's even smaller. I know the down sizing is for pressure build up...... wait for it..... wait...... Can I just put 1/2" throughout the whole trailer?

Thanks,

Mike

Yep, Most of the trailers and park models I have worked on are 1/2

inch throughout.

IF you ahve a mobile home, not a RV or Park Model, i believe code says you have to run at least 3/4" if there are 3 or more fixtures(faucets,toliets,tub,ect) being run off that line? im not 100% positive but thats why it branches down, so you have enough volume first off, then pressure. if you are using more than 1 fixture at a time with only 1/2" you might have volume issues.

Any idea what pressure I should be running the water at?

I am doing a temporary fix until I have time to replace ALL of the piping.

It seems that when I fix one split and pressure up the water I get more.

Currently running at 35 psi.

Thx,

Mike
