    I just replumbed most of my house with CPVC, largely because of the price of PEX tooling and the incompatibilities among brands. Now, I think the brand leader is clear, and I've always been a tool junky, so no question -- I'd go with PEX. I've got one remote bathroom to do yet, and may use PEX there just for the hell of it.

    I was just thinking about it Friday. Copper is gonna price itself out of the market. I love copper, but the customers don't like the price.
