it is a cheap version of flexable water line. the modern ,safe choice is 'pex' pipe.

it can withstand heating,freezing, and flexing, and still not leak.

some grey pipe is prone to leaking at the joints due to the fittings and aging of the grey pipe.

Bob, I have been having a LOT of problems with the gray pipe under my mobile home as well. A friend told me that the manufacturer of the gray pipe was replacing the pipe with newer pipe? Is this true and if so, where can I find out more?

I have a double wide and have had many problems with it, including something I've never seen, two of the gray shutoff's literely blew apart. When the scandal about it with the lawsuits filed I had one of their reps come out and tell me it wasn't gray pipe. I've had several plumbers advise me that it most certainly is. Is there a phone number for this company I can call? I can't find the original paper work on it. Thank you. Rich69ie
