    45-50, I don't stockpile the stuff. At least it isn't 60+ like a few years back.

    I did 30 rolls for my early order. Now I just get about 6-8 rolls with each weekly delivery. The way the phones ringing this time of yr, the 6 out back will still be there mid Aug.

    300, or 400 feet of 3/4 (preferred by tightwads who spend the savings on beer)

    What do you do when you encounter 1/2" poly on old systems?

    It is rare. I could see using it today for shrub spray lines that are dug in by hand. Not that much better flow than funny pipe, though.

    It does predate funny pipe. Costs less than half as much, if you're running any distance. And for crawling through a crowded bed with a roll of pipe, it might mean less work than 3/4
