      good luck guys!

      you'll be able to hold out for a while, but eventually, the lower price point will drive your competitors to use it, then, to stay competitive, a lot of bid jobs will have to be done in pex. It's kind of a slippery slope.
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          It has been approved in California for a long time but on a case by case basis depending on soil and water conditions.

              Like all Codes the Local Administration has the right to adopt which part of the Code they want and throw the rest away.
