If the pipe is rated for the pressure, and is NSF tubing, it isn't a technical fail, but unless you have hose bibs on the main line, there's no reason for it. Master valve first, then a poly mainline (and a de-pressurized poly mainline can be utility-grade tubing)

I was just giving Eddie a hard time. I use poly for mains too but some don't agree.

Non-NSF poly does not make good mains

i looked at a job site for next year today, pics of the property from the corners, existing structure (outside and under side) located lines and tank with my voodoo sticks. pretty much got a picture of the whole layout, when the plans come out, bidding is cake.

here's a hint ed, you're over the tank when the rod(s) spin in a circle. have fun

I still don't see what the few inches of poly between the manifold and the supply accomplishes that a sch 80 union doesn't accomplish more reliably.
