I'd try buying a mixing valve and setting the water heater to nuclear before I dropped the coin on a second water heater.

Expansion tool all the way. You get like 30sec to make the connection before it shrinks back down. This is super useful because it means if you plan things right you almost never have to try and expand something in a tight space or at an odd angle.

I don't sell that one. It's only used in the circus. It's for elephants.

FWIW If you run the hot water in 3/4" it will take longer for the hot water to reach your fixture. The 3/4" pipe holds a larger volume of water. One that water cools off in-between uses, it will all have to be evacuated before the "new" hot water fills the pipe.

Works great if you hate money.

I capped the lines when I took the shower out so need the lines to the tub/shower fixtures from there, we talking over $100 for that?

It'll pay for itself after two or three projects you don't use copper for depending on how big the projects are. I did my air lines with PEX and it more than made up for the cost of the tool.
