Well you guys sold me on using it. The local hardware store has both, the rolls and the tubing, but the tubing only comes in 12' lengths. I think I'm going to go with the roll, as it comes in a 100' roll. For 100' of 3/4" blue, its $49.98, a 100' of 1/2" red is $29.98, and a 100' roll of 1/2" white is $29.98. I think I'll use the 3/4" blue as my main trunk line feed, and splice off of it with the 1/2" white for all of my cold water feeds. The 3/4" blue will run into the new furnace, and then I'll use 1/2" red coming out of the furnace to feed the hot lines throughout the house.
I see there are options for black plastic fittings, white plastic fittings, and brass fittings. What are the recommendations for these? I'm thinking of just going with the white plastic fittings, but if one of the other options is more beneficial, please let me know. Doesn't seem to be a price difference between the white and black plastic fittings, but the brass ones of course, are a little more. I have also found two types of ring collars. Some are black, and some of brass. Any recommendations there?
I appreciate all of the help guys. My wife said to just google my questions, but what fun is that?
