rough-in pipe spacing for bathroom sink
my book says keep 4" between the hot and cold pipes roughing in for a bathroom sink. however, i am inclined to leave more space, maybe even as much as twice that much, because there will be 1.5" PVC in between them and i don't wanna keep it to close to copper to avoid the danger of melting PVC when sweating the copper pipe.
so i was wondering if there are any other issues to keeping the hot and cold farther apart than what the book/code says for comfortable spacing and having more room to work with. i like to use MAPP gas, that thing burns real hot and i'm pretty sure i would melt PVC from just being close to it.
