No "Sparks".
Corrosive resistance.
Soft copper seals very good - no leaks.
If hit, it'll bend first before puncture.

There are two grades(maybe more) of copper tubing.

Ya ever try to flare stainless or steel tubing - not so easy!

Also critters can't chew through it like they could with plastic (pex) tubing.
