Several neighbors just used a Y adapter, buried water pipe outside the house to the new location, and installed a suitable hose bib. This works well if you have grass or garden the whole way , but not if you have to cross walkway or drive way.
Agree with the above post, very doable DIY project. I would add that this is a great plumbing project to use a pex water line extension to your existing plumbing. You will need a pex tubing crimping tool and some crimping clamps, a short piece of pex tubing, and a T shaped shark bite plumbing connector.

Once gaining access to your existing water line, cut the copper pipe and add the appropriate size shark bite T shaped plumbing connector. You this will re-establish your existing cold water line and you can put a piece of pex tubing on the other portion of the T shaped shark bite, no sweating of pipes necessary. You can then crimp the other end of the pex tubing onto the hose bib and attach it securely to your home. Again, no pipe sweating necessary. All parts are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at Lowel's or The Home Depot. And an added benefit is that you will now have the crimping tool for future projects.

If I was currently at the Villages and not at our home up North, I would be happy to bring over my crimping tool and help you out. Good luck.

Copper pipe? I thought it was all plastic here! Main water line in garage is. When I left NJ I got rid of all my tools I used for the copper plumbing stuff I did in our 65yr old home.

In my mind the toughest part (if it is plastic) would be replacing the removed wallboard behind the toilet to get access to the pipes (probably have to remove at least the toilet tank). I have all the stuff for pvc/cpvc.

Thank you for your offer though, it is appreciated.

Our Villa has the 2, one outside the fence next to the garage and one inside the fence next to the lanai. It sounds like and easy job but if you are not sure, hire a plumber to do it for you, probably take an hour tops.

It's all CPVC plumbing, so no copper except right on the water heater.

That's what I thought. Thanks. Should be a relatively easy DIY then.

The cvpc comes up out of the slab. There really is not alot of room to work behind the sheetrock behind the toilet.

If you have the bath sink on that same wall, I would go under the sink and put a T on the cold water coming out to feed the sink, then run that straight back and outside the house. You will have more room to work and will be able to hide it better.
