In response to Re: Replacing water supply line
: My galvanized 3/4 inch line finally gave up the ghost. I am thinking of using either PEX or PVC as
: a replacement (1 to 11/4 inch, with a run from meter to house of about 200 feet). The local plumbing
: company I called keeps trying to sell me copper, but this seems much more expensive than either PEX
: or PVC. Question: what is involved in joining PEX to the water meter line and the existing galvanized
: line going into the house? How much should I expect to pay per foot for 1 inch PEX? Any and
: all facts and suggestions re: installing a new supply line would be greatly appreciated.

Use the copper- more cost now but much less cost latter. Ground movement can and will break plastic. Copper is much cheaper the first time than the second.
