Question 2 tubing questions

1-
This old house has galvanized tubing, 3/4 for cold water and 1/2 along ALL the hot one.
What is the way to go if replacing it for cooper?
To keep main cold in 3/4 (final ends conversions to 1/2) and ALL hot tubing 1/2, or ...
should I put 3/4 for hot water main supply with final ends conversions to 1/2 too?

2-
In the laundry room, tubing will run exposed along one wall.
Can I place electrical outlets for washing machine and dryer on that same wall but around 2 or 3 feet below the tubing?... I don't want to break any National Code.

Thanks

Question #1

Hot water feed 3/4 then 1/2" at each fixture.

Question #2

Not sure about electrical codes but sure there will be no problems.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply.
I got it now.
I was confused because the galvanized tubing is 1/2 all the way, and my next door neighbor put 1/2 cooper hot tubing all the way already because he saw hot 1/2 galvanized too.
I've been in this site before, so I make lots of questions before to do anything, but he did it before I noticed so I couldn't help him, he is about to finish work on the cold line right now.

Now he is very concern about what he did already (yes I show him your reply) so I have another question.

-What will be the consecuences of puting 1/2 hot line tubing ALL the way?

Thanks again.

Supply and demand, chances are if you try to use more then one fixture in the 1/2" line if it is all 1/2" you could see a lose in flow of water.
