    Products .......... 7%
    Lenox Solder ..... 6%

    It's to be expected. Copper prices are way up again. One thing I don't have to worry about is the price of solder. I still have the same half a roll I've been talking about for the last 12 months! LOL I did read that Viega is coming out with (or already did) plastic fittings for their pureflow pex system. Before this you had to use the bronze fittings only. I'm looking forward to using the new pureflow plastic fittings. I'm sure it will be a real cost saver.
