          Mick. Unless copper is being corroded from the inside, I would prefer to use copper at all times, however if the copper is corroding giving the water suspended copper in more than W.H.O recommended quantities I then turn to Cross linked Polyethylene. uPVC is Carcenegenic and the Solvent Cement and Cleaner are both Toluene based and are Carcenegenic.
