Bathroom remodel / need advice on plumbing


Hey guys, I have just recently finished gutting an on suite bathroom. I have it right down to the joists to inspect all the plumbing as there was evidence of water damage below.

I will attach a link to photobucket showing the plumbing. It's obvious that some of the copper lines need replacing.

I want to know what should be done with the old flange and drain pipe for the toilet as well as the drain and p trap for the shower. And while I'm at this should I replace the mixing valve with a new one.

Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Tommy

can you guys see the images all right? Should I just run all new copper or splice out the bad spots?

Do the drain pipes look all right for what you can see in the pics? Would you replace them with pvc or leave as is?

For the most part it looks like copper the house is late 60's era.

Cheers

Tommy
