    Any of your Non-NSF poly under continuous pressure? Utility pipe can vary in quality. Just ask the happy users of Endot's Endoflex utility pipe. Two brand names that have a great track record for their utility stuff are Charter and Oil Creek. Even with a great track record, you don't pressurize utility pipe 24/7 - not worth taking the chance.

    oh man... I ordered 100 rolls of poly star this spring... zero problems.

    everyone who didnt do an early order but bought poly star out of the yard is having MAJOR problems... the supplier wont even sell the 100s of rolls they have in the yard anymore because of all the splits.

    Poly pipe is more of a natural gas derivative.

    I never knew that. I always assumed it was made from oil.

    When it spiked in price a few years back, it seemed to be tracking nat gas curves. I mean, ethylene is a gas. I suppose you can have any hydrocarbon source for making polyethylene, but I suspect that it's cheaper to start with natural gas.

    What are you paying for a roll down that way? About 47 here.
