In response to Re: Poly pipe instead of copper

: My plumber told me it was better to go with poly pipe instead of copper pipe for connecting my water line from the meter to the house. Is the poly pipe better for under ground use even with the screw clamps that must deteriorated after years of being in the ground? If the costs were the same would my plumber tell me to use copper instead of poly?

Most plumbers have never used copper for water services. Poly is quicker and cheaper.
A new construction plumber never gets the repair call years later when there is a problem.
From a repair plumbers point of view, it is not as good. I've repaired my share of split poly over the years.
