Default copper tubing for wort chiller

I was wondering if knew if you can use utility grade soft copper for a wort chiller or if you have to use type L. my plan is to coil the tubing and place it in a five gallon bucket with ice water. sort of like a counterflow. i got the copper on sale so i would like to use it, but if not i can always return it. thanks
