|In response to Re: Plumbing pipes|
HDPE (polyethelene) is used extensively inyard gas piping. IMHO it's leaps and bounds better than extru-coat black or worse tarred and wrapped pipe.
: CPVC is found in some modular homes and other areas. No plumber in his right mind would put just a glue joint between 70PSI and your living room.
: Never heard of HDPE or Polypropylene being use.
: Polybutylene was used for several years, and hundreds of lawyers have retired rich off the lawsuits, which are not over yet.
: A system called PEX ( cross-liked polyethylene) is gaining in popularity rapidly. Old farts like me will be slow to accept it even if it is great.
