Round here we don't run potable water lines in attics.

So on a slab you run it exposed or cut drywall/plaster and drill dozens of studs?

I know it may be difficult for you guys to comprehend but in some places it gets cold. lolz jk


We almost never have slab construction but when we do yes, it gets run in the walls, preferably inside walls. Almost all buildings here at least have crawlspaces.



There is this one church that was rebuilt by a carpenter from the south. They turned it into a bank. Well the southerner had the plumber run the stuff in the attic and they put like a single layer of r8 on top of it. I have spent some quality time in that place with a heat gun and getting covered in fiberglass.


I remember when it was being renovated, I commented to my mother that I found it quite funny they were literally turning a church into a bank. It was the first of two that this particular bank reno'd from church to bank. They have done quite well over the last 10-15 years since the two renos.

Often we drill more holes in the studs/joists than the electricians.

I prefer to cut drywall/plaster and drill studs when I do re-pipes. But I see people running it exposed.

Personally I like exposed pipe in an old home but in our case it would be inside so it wouldn't freeze. I use nicer hangers than the crap copper plated steel milfords. Some azz holes use pvc j hooks on copper! The copperish enamel coated split ring hangers are nice. You can use them without rod if you use a stout wood screw like a 1/4" tapcon.



At least the bell hangers look kind of nice but you have to electrically insulate them from the pipes so they don't get all rusty. I use a couple wraps of electrical tape or some strips of cotton rag for an old timey look. I ran two new 3/4" copper lines about 80' to replace some galv. I did sweat joints where you'd see it in the kitchen. They loved it.




In my opinion the nicest hangers are the old solid cast rings with two screw hole ears. You have to slip them over the end of the pipe because they don't open.

Sometimes you win sometimes you learn.








The copper in the 1st picture is perfectly straight....looks very good. Nice quality craftsmanship.
