What is best pipe for service line
We are looking to replace our service line from the meter to the house and our plumber has recommended pvc over copper. The plumber also commented on the availability of quality copper pipe today. We plan to be in this home for a long time and want the use the best material for this job even if it costs us more. Our water comes from a major municipal water system so water quality is not an issue.
What material do you recommend and why? If PVC is used, will it affect the taste of the water?
The house is approximately 50 years old and while pressure is generally good when we use several fixtures water flow is compromised. We are having landscape work done soon that will involve tearing up our front lawn so we felt like this was the time to make this upgrade.
