Only waste lines are PVC. Supply lines are cpvc which is safe for potable water.
This is incorrect. CPVC is used for HOT water supply because it has a higher temperature handling than regular PVC. PVC supply lines are very common, although I prefer copper.

While I'll give you that in an unground municipal supply situation PVC is a common supply line, however most local codes prohibit the use of non buried PVC supplies. I've never seen in a home past the pressure tank aside from the occasional Harry homeowner hack plumbing repair, but if makes you feel good to call me out then well done.

I have PVC from the road to the house, as you mention. But really, aren't we talking about two different things-flexible PVC and rigid PVC? Wouldn't this constitute different chemistry anyway? Just sayin...cause I don't really know..?
