One example from a Wiki:
Collectively, the Waltons control over 48% of the company (Walmart), and are worth a combined total of $93 billion (as of December 2011).
In 2011 6 members of the Walton family have the same net worth as the bottom 30% of American families combined.

Are you anti PVC guys anti pex too? I really can't see pex having the same issues as PVC. On second thought, pex is sensetive to sunlight, so probably not the best choice. I wonder how the Duratech handles sunlight.
I am not anti PVC, matter of fact I have ran miles of it as drain and vent piping, what it was designed for

Black pipe or type L copper are my choices for an air system.

IF a person decides to use copper avoid saving a few dollars by using type M copper, it is intended for drain and vent usage.
