In respect to this, can you mix plastic and copper plumbing?
Making the connection between plastic pipes such as ABS or PVC and metal pipes such as copper or galvanized steel is very straightforward. The chemicals used in the manufacture of any of these pipes do not react with one another, so you don't have the corrosion factor to worry about.
Additionally, can you attach PVC pipe to copper? You can connect PVC or CPVC to copper in several ways. One common method is to solder a female threaded fitting onto the copper pipe, screw in a male threaded plastic fitting and finish up by gluing plastic pipe to the plastic fitting. The best and most safe option is to use a copper-to-plastic adapter.
Just so, can speedfit be used with copper pipe?
Speedfit fittings can also be used with copper pipe.
Can you use plastic pipes for hot water?
CPVC material goes though an extra chlorination process that gives the plastic slightly different qualities - one of which is a higher maximum operating temperature. CPVC (schedule 80) pipe is rated for use up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it ideal for use on hot water lines in homes and businesses.
