Thanks for all the replys. You've been most helpful.
If I can afford copper, I'll get that. Especially since I'm asking for only rough in kitchen and baths. It would probably be easier for me to work with copper.
I've been installing PEX now for years. When I first started working with it, I was skeptical myself, especially after the dismal track record of Quest products. But now after having worked with it for awhile, and most of the top brands (I install Vanguard, Wirsbo, Rehau depending on contract) and I've not yet had enough serious call-backs or leaks after jobs completed for me to worry about it anymore. I used to think that if I were to build a home for myself, I'd stick to copper since pex is'nt as tried and tested, but I've since changed my mind....I would'nt care if my house was plumbed with pex now. Matter of fact, depending on locale and hardness of the water supply, I'd PREFER pex, and also for scenarios where freezing of pipes may occur, since bursting is'nt a concern with pex but most certainly is with copper.
