Copper vs plastic?

I am starting to plan to redo parts of my plumbing system--Lots of galvanized pipe, some leaks and its all 50 yrs old.

We are on well water that is softened. Would one type of pipe be better over the other to use in this application?

Thanks for the info.

If the water has a high PH balance in it, then best go with CPVC.
