    a socket fusion system is goint to set you back $1500. and a butt fusion system is $3000.

    i suggest you rent from them instead.

      I have been using the mechanical fittings for a few years and they work great. No fusion tools required. You do have to buy the chamfering tool or you will have problems.

        Cal Steam will have everything you need. They carry both mechanical and butt fusion fittings. I don't know about CS, but Ferguson rents fusion machines by the day. One thing to remember is that HDPE and butt fusion can be used for water service piping. When 2" L is running over $10/ft, $1.50/ft 2" HDPE looks pretty attractive.
