  • Use the proper piping.

The type of piping you need to use will depend on your climate and ground type. For example, PVC pipe is the standard option. However, there are different diameters and wall thickness’. Poly pipe is for colder climates and has a different installation process.

  • Don’t Overlook Local Codes
