Underground copper pipe protection
The plumber is gonna charge me the same (or close) for PEX pipe vs copper pipe. (I wonder why but I bet copper is more valuable, better underground than PEX?) I was gonna do PEX myself but I found that there are quite a lot of works and involve some heavy duty tools instead of hand tools that I am more comfortable with. Trencher, jackhammer, concrete foundation work, main service meter, etc.
I also have a few other projects that should be done asap. (Just replaced a new skylight yesterday with new flashing and surrounding shingles since the old one was leaking), major bathroom remodel, new flooring, etc ..
The guy told me type K pipe is not necessary and type L is good enough ? How much more are we talking about 100ft type K vs 100 ft type L? Thank you.
