what should i replace my galvanized water supply pipes with?

I'm replacing all of the pipes under the house. 

should i go with the original galvanized or something easier to work with that comes on a roll and requires no threading?

Hi JMcoomer,

 

For underground plumbing I would recommend copper pipe as it is trouble free, won't rust and is easier to work with than galvanized pipe.

 

For any above ground plumbing I would recommend Pex tubing and Shark-Bite fittings. These are push on fittings

so no soldering is required.

 

You can plumb all of your hot and cold water system, using just the fittings and a tubing cutter. No wrenches or a torch is required.

 

You can buy the Pex tubing and the Shark-Bite fittings at your local Home Depot.

 

Mike,
