Many years ago, most systems used galvanized pipe. No problem with floating, but a short life expectancy and some rust issues. Using poly, we thread it through a few concrete blocks. I also thread it through a larger diameter 8 foot section of poly to protect from ice and wave action rubbing on the rocks where the line comes ashore.
