My preference is always copper. However, if your well test shows the water to have a low PH, on the acid side, you will need a Neutralizer on your system. If you don't, your copper piping will be short lived. Here on the eastern shore of DE cpvc is preferred for just that reason. My choice for our homes has always been copper with a nutralizer.

: We're getting ready to have our house built and the plumber is going to install copper water lines instead of PVC. Knowing very little about plumbing, are there any drawbacks I should know about this? We aren't sure what kind of water quality we will have since we have yet to have our well drilled. Thank you.
