          Todd..Different plumbers have differing opinions on the type of repipe materials to use. Personally I favor CPVC, I have used it for 15-20 yrs. and have had no problems with it (except for rodents occasionally snacking on it). If this was your first experience with leaks in copper piping, you may wish to check out the link below, I will be happy to forward some info on what you can be done to prevent leaks in copper piping. Lotsa Luck …. Bud..Suncoast Plumbing..Sunny Florida..Merry Christmas…
