1 Day one, shored on blocks and wheels pulled off.
9 Besides the other places where the breaks are more visible, there are long cracks in the cpvc tubing. If you look closely, just behind the coupling there is a crack that extends all the way back through the wall.The easiest repair is to just replace all the plumbing with pex.
