    I was about to suggest that.

    If it's grey and scrapes like plastic then it's probably PB line. The previous homeowners or the township may have records regarding this as well.

    Thanks. I opened up the meter box and the pipe was caked with dirt. I scraped a section off and it appeared to be gray as well.

    it has a polybutylene connector. the service line *may* be PB line or it may not. we can't see it here in this picture. PB line is most commonly known for the class action lawsuit involved. It goes under a few names but Qest or Quest is the one I'm familiar with.
