I would suggest that you contact your local water authority or check with a consumer body with your State and ask the same question. Here in Australia we have a range of pipes that we are using at the moment which are approved for our use but may not be ok for use in your State. : However I would suggest that you ask the question and in particular about polybutelene type pipes. : It may be that you have to avoid a particular product and go for one which is a cross polymer or one that is recommended by the Local Plumber. : There is a very good range of product on the market know which can cope with pressure up to 300 pounds and temperatures up to 8o degrees celcius. : Do some research if you can it will pay off.Stainless Steel is another option that perhaps you could investigate. : Regards : Colin Dunn. Can anyone tell me why polybutelene pipes have been banned in the US? I have polybutelene pipes and the water has a dreadful taste nearest the closest pipes to the hot water service. Is this normal with these pipes? Are there any recorded health problems from their use?
