From what I can tell there is some corrosion on the inside as well as the outside from some of the pieces I've cut off. That might not be enough to redo the house, but we've been redoing almost everything else and it got me thinking about my options.
We've had the house for 6 months and during that time I've done some minor plumbing work under the bathroom sinks, each job I've done I've needed to replace small sections of pipe and assuming that what I don't see behind the walls as at least as bad as what I can see.Given that I'm likely going to want to overhaul the pipes throughout the house, I'm looking at my options. I think if I redo in copper I'll likely need to have someone do the work as I don't trust myself to...
Anyone have experience switching from copper pipe to PEX and doing it themselves? Worth the cost and hassle?

11/50 Edge of Eternity - Ken Follett Cold war/civil rights conclusion to this triglogy. Honestly by the time I put this down I was happy the trilogy was over.
I appreciate you calling me out on this as I think this highlights the downside of trying to add a quick review as soon as you put a book down. When I finished I felt like there were so many unanswered questions, but contemplating it after I felt a lot more closure and should've updated my post.
10/50 The Kills - Richard House This was well written and an enjoyable read, yet after 1,000 pages it would've been nice if any of the threads of the storyline were truly resolved.
Work and family have slowed me down recently, however: 6/50 Fall of Giants - Ken Follett Nothing amazing, but a good story of interlinked families upto and during World War 1 7/50 Winter of the World - Ken Follett Inter war years sand through World War 2, a little edgier but still fairly tame 8/50 A Most Wanted Man - John Le Carre Not as good as his Cold War stories, but an enjoyable read 9/50 The Son - Phillip Meyer I almost forgot to add this. Appreciate the...
5/50 Tsukuru Tazaki - Murakami It's already been reviewed and I wasn't sure what to expect. This ended up being one of my favourite from Murakami, despite the loose ends. Maybe it's the closer to real life nature of the story, or just the easy flow.
