Default Re-Piping House Cost?

Long story short is that I had a pipe leak/break in the foundation and it has been determined (by 3 plumbers) that I need to do a complete re-pipe of the entire home. It has galvanized piping from many moons ago (built in 1951).

So far, I have got quotes all over the place.

One guy at $8800 (most knowledgeable and did complete walkthrough), one at $5300 (referred to me), and the first plumber out (sent by my warranty company) will do it for $5500 and knock off the $500 my warranty company will cover. However, they weren't as thorough as the rest and I feel they are taking advantage of me because of my home warranty (they don't think I am going after second opinions, etc).

Does this seem about right for a 3 bath home around 2800 sq ft? Obviously I have kitchen, hot water heater, and laundry as well.

All 3 plumbers have said they will use CPVC. I am awaiting ONE more quote from Delta Mechanical, one of the largest mechanical contractors in the nation. Due to that, I have read bad and good reviews online...but they are often the cheapest because they specialize in repiping...unlike your average plumber. They quoted me $5000 even online through e-mail...but I don't trust that, I want someone to show up.

I have had no water since Friday afternoon when the break started (and put over an inch of water on a quarter of my floor) and I'm ready to break.

Any experience with a full repiping job? If so, what did you pay?
