PB?

It is almost certainly polyethylene pipe which is allowed for by International Code as water service pipe. Being plastic, this means it "must terminate within 5 feet inside of the point where the pipe penetrates an exterior wall or slab on grade." (IPC 605.3). Judging from the 14/2 Romex taped to it I think it might have exceeded the 5'.[;)]

Thank you gentleman. This house actually had both well and public water hookup. The well is serving the irrigation system.

The original public line was PB. It was changed to PE and I noticed that as soon as I saw it. I don't like the was they ran through the wall without a sleeve though.
