Underground Water Line; what material?
Posted by Kurt Faymon on February 08, 19101 at 11:25:09:
I want/need to run a water line from the crawl space of the house (standard copper pipes) out to a backyard pool, burying the pipe 36-48 inches underground, terminating with standard outdoor faucet. This will keep me from having hoses running all the way out to pool.

Live in a winter climate, so it will freeze/thaw; no big deal as line would be shut off/drained/blown out as part of pool closing.

My question is what material to use in buried section of water line; I'm guessing burying copper not such a hot idea. PVC, maybe? Will copper-to-PVC joint and PVC piping/joints be able to withstand constant water pressure in lines?
