Q:

A pipe broke in my vacation place this winter.  I have a series of galvanized fittings connecting everything. On the bottom is a T, out of which on one end is a garden hose and on the other end is CPVC going to the hot water tank. Moving up, I have a PEX line in from my holding tank. The CPVC is what broke. Would it be smarter to take this apart, or should I just cut the pex and rubber-like pipes, remove the garden hose, and reconnect with new fittings?
