I have just purchased a home in sunny Arizona & out here it seems that plastic water piping is the way to go. I now find that in my case at least that in the mornings it is quite noisy, by that I mean it does a lot of cracking & poping. My question is am I going to regret having this stuff behind my wall in the near future, is it any good???
It is not the way to go everywhere out here. Most custom homes still use copper piping. Whether you will regret it or not is hard to say. If you have a situation where the pipes break due to poor installation then that will be a factor. And since most plastic lines are run in the attics, you are going to have a hard time getting cool water in the summertime. But then almost everyone else out here does too.
