We may have to have our water line replaced from the meter to the house. What kind of pipe should it be replaced with?
Where do you at??
Might want to check with the city, they might have a recommendation n depending on the water and soil in your area.
Here in BC, the most common are:Soft Copper Black Polyethylene (aka municipal tubing) PEX
The black tubing is probably cheapest but isn't rated for hot water.
I'm in Seattle, itiswhatitis1.
Thank you Shawner! Pictures, too!
I don't think PEX is approved for underground burial and definitely not soft copper.
So is there some kind of a meter that can detect a water leak? Is there a metal detector or something that can detect metal pipes?
Thank you nealtw. Can this be done on a driveway that has a downslope?
I don't see any reason why it couldn't be done. I would find a couple companys and get quotes.
