Wirsbo, flex, hard pvc?

I'm ready to put in a lawn sprinkler system and have many voices telling me to use wirsbo, flex and some say pvc. We live in a climate where it can be a hard Winter. Part of my existing system is PVC and have had no problems with freezing pipes.

We live in South Central Washington State about 1800 ft. Above Sea Level near the Simcoe Mountains. We are on a well.

My lawn sprinkler system is not going to be very large-- 35X55 ft. Therefore, I could go with flex or Wirsbo but keep hearing about the costs of the connectors. I will have to connect to PVC from whatever I use.

What are the differences and problems and advantages ?( associated with each? :?:

If PVC has worked, keep using it. Do you winterize the system?

Yes, I do. So far no problems. I was only thinking of ease of installation plus all the blog info on that stuff not freezing as easy as pvc does.

If you aren't removing the water from the system piping, it will be subject to freeze damage, no matter what material you select.
