pex pipe
 
I think I owe a big thanks to Ron the Plumber here for all he has said about pex pipe.I just replaced all me water lines with it and the new quick conenct conectors what a breeze ,if it wernt for what I had read on here I would have used copper or pvc and been at it all day and then some but this only took a few hours .Who ever invented this stuff should win some kind of home repair award:thumbsup:

Unless specified otherwise by the homeowner, PEX is all that the pro plumbers in this area have been installing for years.
I went copper when I built my home back in '77, but I would definitely go with PEX today instead.

Yeah , yet they still charge the same as if they were installing copper, I had a guy quote me $11,000 to redo my house with pex. Ill be doing it myself thank you.So whats the link to rons post? i have read alot but im sure the info comming stright from a pro would be alot better than the technical litterature Ive been thumbing through.
