Stupid faucet

I began putting in an outdoor faucet today. I bought the correct PVC pipe and had everything cut right, put it together before cutting into the waterline or gluing, and saw that the guy who lived here before used CPVC.

For those of you like me who don’t/didn’t know the difference, CPVC is smaller and the same size as the old copper tubing (approximately).

So I went back to Lowes and bought all the pieces in CPVC, except one elbow. By the time I realized I was short that piece, it was too late to start hacking into the waterline in case there was a leak or something. I stopped and plan on finishing it tomorrow.

The good news is that everything seems to soft-fit this time as well. Yay, the first of hopefully many home improvement projects this summer.
