Carl:It is possible to pull new replacement HDPE
lines through the failed copper lines with great
ease and success. The volume of water delivered to each fixture will be somewhat less that that delivered by the original piping scheme. In todays reduced flow mandate, the difference will not be noticeable.
Minimal upset to the premises and substantial savings can be had by those who elect to use the
failed piping as a means to thread new lines in.
Bud..

I have a 2300 sft house on slab. The plumbing, I discovered when water started coming from the wall, is either under or in the slab. Replumbing into the attic is the only viable solution that I see. Would cpvc be the material to use? Even though I have installed toilets, sinks, drain systems in new construction, I'm not certain of the methods used to replumb. I'm so old that my experience is with the old iron pipe.

: I'll probably have to contract the job out.
