An update on my system...

All the houses in my neighboorhood, which is a new subdivision, have Poly run from the street to the foundation and then through the wall in copper and the whole house is copper. Isn't that odd?

That's how it is here, too.

I am having a hard time finding an adapter to go from my poly to PVC. My poly says it is SDR-9 200PSI 1" Service Line. I can't find any adapters at the local Lowes. All their adapters fits 160 PSI pipe.

Any ideas?

simply buy a 1" Female addapter for the poly, and a 1" PVC male adapter and screw them together....that will convert...be sure to use 2 clamps becuase its under pressure, and put teflon on the threads

I tried that but my poly pipe is not the same diameter as 160 PSI pipe. It is smaller on the inside.

BTW, I just got off the phone with my local irrigation supply guy and he said they have what I need. It's a compression fitting for 200 PSI poly with pipe threads on the outlet end.

He's going to sell it to me. He said it is pretty easy to hook up. I am excited, I should be trenching this week!

Just to confirm- Many of the homes I'b ve been quoting on and have been built in the past 15 years do have a 1" Poly coming into the home as a main connected to the meter. It is NSF branded
