    I am just curious what the lifespan of Polyethylene Piping?
    30 years?
    40 years?
    50 years?

    It will pretty much last indefinitely in the ground. I think somewhere along the line I saw something about a 50 year warranty???

    Long time. Ive never seen any just "rot". Mechanical damage to it can neccisitate replacement, or debris lodged inside though.
