    Think seriously about replacing the old copper with new copper pipe. The cost alone would give you kittens. The price of copper has skyrocketed the last decade. Proof of this is all the hoons stealing copper from railway tracks and abandoned houses to sell to metal yards etc.

    Secondly, unless you are qualified to install copper piping I would stay away. With all the gas welding required to join the lengths or put fittings like elbows etc in, it is a job for the professional plumber.

    I can understand you wanting to save money on the project and the best advise I can give to to go with PVC pipes to replace the copper. Fittings simply glue together, easy to cut and cost way less too.

    Another way to make a saving is to take out all the copper pipe, replace it with PVC pipes and sell the copper yourself to the metal yard (I think there is one in Wells Rd, Seaford by memory). That way you recoup some of the initial cost.

    I hope this has helped you.

    Thanks for the reply but I have one more question if I could.

    I live in an old house in William St, Frankston just near the football oval and I need to replace my old copper water pipes. Do you have any ideas for me before I start this please? I appreciate any plumbing advise you could give.

    Hi James,

    Giving a price is difficult without seeing the job. There are many factors involved including materials needed to complete the reno.

    Give me a call on 0412 999 786 and I will give you a free quote for sure.
