It is leaking somewhere between the Meter and the House.

Great idea. What kind of fitting do you use to connect and be able to pull the new line through where the old line was? I don't know if he has a sandy soil but will ask him.

Do you guys think this could be pulled through without breaking or coming apart?

New supplier has Poly-Core or something.

C900 is for main and branch water mains, not from meter to house.

They had to use PEX for Athens, IL, because the idiot who was water commissioner did not know about water chemistry and the water was actually eating away at Copper Piping. The Village had to go through and pull all of the Copper and put in CTS to the houses and businesses, PEX inside.

Pure Core & Poly Core are just marketing names. It is still HDPE.

In theory that is a single piece of pipe from the meter to a fitting inside the house. Take a good look at the connection where the blue pipe meets the meter.

How bad is the leak?

Actually it should be a single pipe to the Pressure Regulator. What are you looking for when you say take a look at the connection to the meter? I believe it will be either female or male ips threads that he will connect to. Thanks for your input.
