Just throwing in that PVC is not allowed for potable water supply lines above ground/inside houses (they are ok below ground where the temperature stays cooler). It would be CPVC instead of PVC though. I know a lot of people do use the term "pvc" interchangeably with "cpvc" but the plumbing code specifies that CPVC is approved whereas PVC is not. (I spent a considerable amount of time pouring over the plumbing code to confirm this).
My potable water mostly appear to be PVC. /facepalm
I have to give a thumbs up to the braided lines though.
One caution on PEX is that there are apparently some bugs that eat through them and sometimes rodents will chew them, but I've heard that is fairly rare. When it does happen, the damage is not covered by the warranty.
