Pex Pex Pex... I cant say enough about the versatility, durability and the resale value. This is tough choice since we all seem to have differing opinions here but unless you do this stuff for a living your crazy to even think about spending $2K on tools
(thats insane... give me the 2k and ill come sweat the whole damb system for ya
I've got a lot of tools that I paid a lot of money to buy. Don't use them every day but when I need it, I got it. Sorta like the wife.
I'm looking into the speed aspect of this job. I'm sorta like the rooster in this place. The only male on the property with 4 females I have to deal with. God forbid if they don't have water when they turn on the spigot. Our 1 well supplies 3 houses. I cannot have it down for too long. Now the coal boiler repair/replace/redo will not have that great of an impact since I can just switch over to oil.
And thanks plumb_r for the tip about Ferguson. I have a couple of them within 10 miles of me. I'll be checking into them. Renting a tool for the weekend may be a distinct possibility.
