The USA seems to use a lot more cpvc pips (or pvc-c pipe) than here in Europe. I think a lot of it is due to a supply issue. We supply a full range of USA spec and metric cpvc (pvc-c) into the European market from our online store at http://www.pisces-aqua.co.uk which is based in the UK

Thanks for the post - this was helpful in considering the best way forward in my basement remodel.

@Toid - I'd assume your opinion on products like SharkBite is similar to your opinion on CPVC plumbing for supply lines. From everything I've read it seems that many career plumbers prefer standard copper plumbing yet CPVC and similar types of push-fit or cement-on pluming have definitely found applicability and validity over the years and not just because it's easy to use. I'm starting to wonder if the anti-CPVC sentiment from career plumbers is simply related to job security...

Cpvc is a horrible material to replace water lines. As a journeyman plumber I see tons of leaks in CPVC that is around 15 years old. Also at that age it gets really brittle and could be broke with ease.
