In response to Re: copper to PVC union ok underground ?
In Arizona, pools are never piped with copper. The pool water attacks the metal and leaves green residue in the pool. You do not need a copper to plastic union. You need a copper female adapter, a schedule 80 PVC TOE nipple and a PVC coupling to make the transition.

: I am re-piping my swimming pool filtration system. The new location requires me to extend the 2 existing lines by 40 feet. These lines will untimately be covered by earth and then have a concrete deck over them. I would like to use PVC pipe to save money, but I am fearful of burying the copper to PVC union (compression) in case it ever fails. So, 2 quesitons:

: 1) Is my fear founded ? What if I encased the union in concrete ?

: 2) Where is a good source for 2" copper pipe in the Los Angeles area. (the home improvement centers seem to be a ripoff on this item)
