all hardware stores sell adaptors to change from copper to plastic. You solder the adaptor to the copper pipe and attach the plastic pipe to this adapt…or using screw clamps to tighten the plastic pipe on the adaptor. To be honest. This answer seems like a bush plumbers answer. To be technically correct. In order for you to connect plastic piping to copper piping one fitting is used and it is called a conex fitting, otherwise called cxc fitting. It has a nut and ring on either side of the joint and this type of fitting can be used on either copper or plastic making it ideal. As you tighten the nut the ring inside tightens onto either the plastic or copper making a water tight connection. It is said above that soldering a copper joint and then attaching it to the plastic pipe is the way but in my experience if you try do that, the heat from the soldering will melt the plastic pipe. Take the safer route and more professional route and use conex fittings.
Copper is easy to use and work with. The minerals in water generally do not build up on copper as easily as on galvanized steel. After WWII copper was relatively cheap and ava…ilable in great quantities so the plumbing products industry changed to it as its standard pipe. Now copper is much more expensive and new materials such as plastics are being used. Copper does not rust or perish easily, making it ideal for use in any climate. Copper is also heat and cold resistant and swells and contracts much less than other materials when its temperature changes. Copper resists damage from minor home fires much better than plastic.
Usually, installing a toilet is simple. You do need to be able to follow the directions, and have the proper tools. You will also need to remove the previous toilet and re…place the wax ring. Problems with turning off the water valve behind the toilet or some other problem may require a plumber.

There is no "Average Price" that can be given. Most of the cost of piping a house is the labor, not the materials. Since labor rates vary greatly, you would need an estimate f…rom a plumbing company that services you area. You should be able to find more than one plumbing company that will come and give you a FREE estimate. There should be no need to pay for an estimate, think of it as them bidding for the job. If they want to charge for an estimate, it's usually is a sign that they rarely get an estimate accepted, and there is probably a reason for that. I have worked as a plumber, and free residential estimates are normal in most places.

If you want to install plumbing in a new shower and need to ask this question, you really mustn't try it, because you aren't a plumber. It might cost a bit to get a real plumb…er to do the job, but that's nothing to what an amateur job will cost you when it all goes wrong. You wouldn't believe the damage your home can end up with when things involving water don't work right. For similar reasons, get an electrician to do your wiring, a carpenter to hang your doors, and so on. You wouldn't get a mate who's found a website on anatomy to take out your appendix, so don't trust your home to work that will - not might - cause real trouble. All qualified tradesman have credentials they will show you if you ask, to prove they've done the study and know what they're doing. If they don't want to show you their papers, they aren't qualified. Find someone else. Your insurance is very unlikely to cover damage caused by letting unqualified people - including yourself - loose on your home improvements.
