In response to Re: polybutylene plumbing replacement
: We have now had 6 leaks in our 14 year old pipes on well water. We have filed a claim to replace the pipes. Does anyone have any lessons learned from this? We are a bit concerned about what to replace with since we have a high acidity score on our water.

Copper would not be a good choice, regardless of the rating, unless you treat the acidic condition. Treatment should be done regardless because it is corroding all your metal fixtures too. And adding metals such as copper, lead etc. that is in the metal the plumbing and fixtures are made of; such as brass which contains lead.
