  • Piping for Alkaline Water

    My Mother owns several arcres near the Colorado River in Calfornia. They use wells to provide non-potable water. The water is high in alkaline content. I need to replace about 300' of underground water service. Does anyone know of the best piping for this purpose.

    plumbdog10,

    CPVC is unaffected by water or soil which is high in alkaline.

          Mike,

          There are pretty much no codes because we are talking rural, well.......not even rural, flat-*** middle of the desert. A place I love.

          But your advice is well informed, and I thank you.

          I don't remember you posting before. Please stay involved, the more contributing the better.
