Copper Pipes (Which I think are Best for Water Lines)
Since the 1960s, copper has been the standard plumbing material because it is highly durable. Since then, other materials have been developed, but copper is still one of the best possibilities. If not the Best.
The most significant disadvantage of copper pipe is its expensive cost, which is why most stay away from this proven material. And you also need to solder the piping and fittings.
When I was working for plumbing companies in the 1980s The plumbing companies would install plastic piping called polybutylene.
The plastic piping was eventually removed and replaced with copper piping.
ABS Plastic Piping
This is a material which will generally last 50 + years if installed accordingly to the best practices of installation.
Pex is an upgrade of Polybutylene.
Although a lot of plumbers do use Pex and other plastic piping in different parts of the world. And is less expensive than copper piping.
I just prefer copper. I Always use copper for any Pressurized Water Piping. Which are used around the world.
I have mentioned other types of piping. And you have to Check for your Local Building codes to see which are approved.
Although I left Pex out because Even though it is inexpensive I always prefer copper piping.
Polyvinyl Chloride Piping or PVC
There are two types of PVC plastic frequently used in plumbing: Schedule 40 and Schedule 80. These are mostly for a exterior installation. For swimming pools etc.
Schedule 40 is a. PVC is the most used material since it is less expensive and has thinner walls.
Schedule 80, b. PVC has thicker walls, which increases its durability and price.
Tables are provided by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to standardize PVC piping's outside diameter. The benefits and drawbacks of using PVC for piping are listed in the accompanying table.
