There two major types of plastic pipe: the rigid and flexible forms. Depending on the type of plastic it is made of, rigid or firm pipes are used for hot and cold water systems. In order to cut rigid pipes, a hack saw can be used. Solvent cement can easily glue pieces together. A tube cutter that is used for flexible copper pipe is convenient for cutting rigid style plastic pipes. However a specialized blade is demanded - one that is meant for chopping plastic not cast iron or bronze metal.
Flexible plastic pipe use is limited only to supply systems. Compression fittings are used to connect them instead of solvent cements. Generally, they are used for interior systems for hot and cold water. Plastic pipe can also be used for exterior water supply systems. Polybutylene can withstand high temperatures, is sturdy and slightly more expensive than the rigid pipe. In remodeling jobs, flexible pipe is preferred for passing through lawn irrigation system, floor, walls, and ceilings. These pipes are strong theres a chance they might be damaged so dont bend on sharp curves. Extra support ensures more stability in long runs.
Then determine which way you want to run the floor. That means when you are looking at the room do you want the flooring to run horizontal or vertical? Trying to run the flooring diagonally is a great look but you should only try it if you pretty handy and have a lot of patience because it will require a lot of miter cuts. Now you are ready to lay the underlay. This should lie side by side, do not overlap it. Start in the center of the room. Pergo has made their wood flooring easy to use, it has a pre-glued tongue and groove system and it literally just snaps together, you can use a mallet just to tap the ends to make sure that the seam is tight. From the center of the room snap together your next piece on the short sides and continue all the way across the floor. For your next row do not line it up with the first piece perfectly, offset it. Otherwise, you will get a seam line and a noticeable repeated pattern. When you get to the edges and they are up against an object, a pull bar comes in handy so that you can still keep the seams tight.
