Carry on...
Municipalities all over North America and Europe use PVC pipes to distribute water to homes so it's completely safe for drinking water.

Cold water plumbing in most Florida homes were white PVC with the hot water CPVC. Plumbers now either use CPVC for both cold and hot or PEX. Not becase pvc is banded or bad, because its easier.

There are arguments for and against, and plumbers on both sides of the issue.

From ""

"Plastic pipe such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride, used for cold water only), and CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, used for both hot and cold water) have been around for years, and both are approved for use with drinking water. Neither can be described as environmentally friendly from a production or recycling standpoint, however, and the glue used to join them together contains some strong solvents as well.

There is some concern about the leaching of chemicals that can give water a plastic taste, though the taste usually improves after a few months. Safety issues are mainly considered a concern in PVC pipe that was manufactured before 1977. While Iíve not seen any compelling evidence of the health risk of drinking water from PVC or CPVC plumbing, there is always the possibility that something will turn up in the future."

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

Dogs drink from ditches, and look; they live to around 15 years.... or more!

Compounds of Chlorine in very small concentrations, is the least of my worries. I'm almost 70, so anything past that is gravy!

Somethings going to kill you. No one gets out of this alive anyway.

I think they need to remove ALL warning labels from everything and let nature take its course.

I put in the shurflo because I didn't have enough room to add anything bigger the pump still comes on almost as much but it is quieter because you don't get the hammering. It also makes the flow smoother you don't get the pressure fluctuation.

Think about things before you do them make life easier not harder.
