I want to connect an outside faucet to my buried inlet, but the polyethylene pipes are black and orange inside? The house is old, so do you think I can put the existing brass fitting and do you know what type of pipes (color) while the pipes of us days black inside and outside thank you

Your installation is old, nowadays the color of the net on the pipe determines its use: - Net blue: the pipe is intended for the transport of drinking water. - Yellow net: it is suitable for gas. - Without net and low density: watering the garden.

In fact the color of the pipe does not matter, since it is not a water intake for the supply, as long as the water arrives and the diameter matches your connections. There are a multitude of solutions and fittings adapted or mixed connectors that connect different materials (copper and PVC for example) or pipes of different sections.
