I have not heard of pressure treated plywood, maybe marine grade.
I like the high-altitude fir, with a marine grade glue, paper face on both sides.
100 pounds a sheet in a 1Ē thickness, but is quite strong. I use it under tile installations.

I wonít use pex, just not going to do that to the next generation. Itís plastic, itís not a question as to whether it will fail, but when. Water mains in our neighborhoods yards are beginning to fail from the last great thing, way before that similar systems were banned from inside mobile homes.

Research "pinholes in copper pipe".

I have repaired 5 in the last 12 years in this house. It is 45 years old and I suspect that is the life of copper pipe.

My last house had none, but I had replaced the Iron Pipe with copper only ten years before I sold it.

Depending on the ph of your water and the thickness of the copper pipe (In the USA there are three grades/thicknesses) it may be as little as 10 years or as much as 50 years.

It is not a question of if it will fail, but when....

In stock at Home Depot.

The copper in my 1948 house is rotten. (The copper may be a later addition-- I've suspected in 1948 it was bucket from the creek and a little house in the side yard.) I touched a toilet line and it broke. (This is distinct from the bad workmanship in my 1983 house.)

And what did we buy today?
Sonance AC2 Power Sequencer (not my pic)

Not a purchase, but a gift from a friend. A fixer-upper, had a blown-out filter cap in the 12V supply, coupla cracked solder joints, top cover is missing - good excuse to buy a sheet metal brake. Got it working tonight, it's just what I was looking for to control my audio system. Will add an IR remote receiver next week.

Hey Joe, if you're reading this, thanks man! Give them dogs a pat on the head for me.
