    Anyone out there use or ever hear of N-dot poly? Its not presurized and I think its made of recycled plastic. It costs about $8 less/ roll as compared to Oil Creek.
    I probably wouldnt switch but just curious about the quality. IMO Oil Creek is the best when compared to Polystar,United and Charter.

    Endot is stocked by some well-water-equipment suppliers. The NSF tubing, of course, that's made from virgin material, and not any utility grade pipe. I very much doubt that recycled material would get used, unless they remelted some of their own tubing. Being that the hydrocarbon source of poly pipe has been wildly fluctuating in price, it could be that one manufacturer was able to cut a better deal than another.

    I have seen pricing across the board from 45-66 per 300'. Whatever happened to the good ol days?

    In the good old days, the spot price of natural gas wasn't over fifteen bucks.

    I've done up all our parts' prices on Excel and then put the tax formula in to get a true cost to charge out on each job. I just completed an update Friday based on invoices and prices are still going up across the board. :dizzy:

    In the news over the weekend NG pricing was going to drop 30pts because of oversupply.

    Any bets as to WHEN or IF this will filter down the food chain? :laugh:

    Uh-oh, Jack Bauer just blew up the Wilshire pumping station, and used up the oversupply. Seventy bucks, here we come!

    Long-term NG prices seem stable, if the futures market is any indication.
