our property has galvanized water supply lines, it is a 2 story double
with a basement. there is one bathroom with a shower, toilet, and

the first floor--of course. No bath on the first floor.
For those experienced with the task of supply line replacement, what

my current home for outside use. Should I attempt to replace these
supply pipes myself?

where all the existing lines are, get several estimates from plumbers that
friends/neighbors recommend, and ones that Better Business Bureau has no
