|In response to Re: copper vs cpvc|
I tell my customers that unless the added cost of the copper is extravagant (because the plumbers prefer to use CPVC), then go that route, otherwise CPVC is suitable. The one big disadvantage of CPVC is that the o.d. is the same as copper, but since the wall is thicker the actual water carrying capacity is considerably less for the smaller sizes of pipe.
