Understanding your plumbing system makes it a lot easier to take care of, and piping is a primary component. Look at this video if you’re interested in getting to know your home’s pipes.
Copper piping can be either hard drawn or soft drawn. Hard drawn pipes are stiff and straight, while soft drawn is a coil. The outside coloring of each pipe will let you know what type it is. Red indicates type M, which can’t be used with potable water because the sidewall is so thin that it can erode with the velocity of the water moving through it.
