Water Line Replacement

We may have to have our water line replaced from the meter to the house. What kind of pipe should it be replaced with?

What do you mean by the flashing? Do you mean inside the house in the basement? No, there's no bricks in there.

creosote

I guess creosote use is against the law, at least in this area, although it is still used on railroad ties. Is there another wood preservative that works as well as creosote?

Thank you.
