water supply

It is far cheaper than copper.
It is much easier to install.
It won't corrode or rust.
It leaves no "metallic" taste.
It is what everyone around here has used for many years, including me when we finally got County public water way out here in the boonies.
Just make sure that it is buried below your frost line, and not in a rocky trench.
Good luck!
