They grey pipe you are referring too is polybutylene, it was the subject of one of the largest class action lawsuits in Plumbing history and is no longer used. Transition to a different pipe depends on the method used for installation. This job may involve a considerable amount of repiping I recommend calling a licensed plumber. Check the polybutylene class action settlement to see if you qualify. The dates for most of the settlement relief is already past.

PVC corrosion resistant pressure pipe, IPS sizes 1/8" through 24", is ideal for use in applications with temperatures up to and including 140°F.
