Copper "Type L" Pipe Question

Have a 3/4" copper main line in the house. Am moving my washer/ dryer to a new location and must run a new line to the washer. Have been pricing 3/4" copper, type L, pipe in
10' lengths. Prices vary from $16.50(Home Depot) to $26.50(local plumbing supply co.). Are there different grades of "Type L" or what? Thanks.

copper

Type L is the grade. You won't get a better price at a plumbing supply unless you have an account. If price is the objection you could go with PEX. Luck.

Type L is a uniform grading standard. Buy it where it is the least expensive.

Problem solved

Just wanted to get the best grade available. Don't mind paying the price if its a better grade, but why pay more then I have to for the same thing . If I'm going to do it, I want to use the right stuff. Thanks again.
