Good point. That's something I had not considered. As my installation
includes runs through conduit and a stringer I may have to go with copper for that reason alone. I had assumed that it was distension of the nylon tubing that caused the "squish".
Problem is that due to lots of bends before entering the conduit, copper would have to be bent, then shoved and pulled through the conduit/stringer, hoping that it straightens as it goes... doable I suppose, though the profanity required may put my soul at risk.
