I'm thinking that at this point I'll need a plumber to do this, but wanted
to toss this idea out first.
I'm trying to replace the galvanized hot water pipe to my kitchen - it's
rusted shut as galvanized is want to do over time. Anyways, the pipe is in
the crawlspace, elbows into the sill plate, elbows vertical in the wall,
then elbows out of the wall inside the sink cabinet. The sill plate hole is
filled with concrete.
I just can't see myself getting that pipe out of there without major
construction. The best bet I have is to cut the pipe at the sill plate then
pull it out of the wall under the cabinet. Maybe do-able but I'll never be
able to run the new pipe using that same route. I just can't see it
happening. So here's what I was wondering. Would it be kosher to simply
drill a hole in the floor of the cabinet, through the underlayment and avoid
all those nasty joints? That way it's a simple down, elbow to the source.
It's either that or I bring in a professional. Nothing wrong with bringing
in a professional of course, but I really would like to do it myself so long
as it's feasible.
