And yes, pvc pipe will eat poly, so will treated lumber. White latex paint as a barrier is the answer.

They must have been talking about the seams and not the plastic.

I bought the exact same film. I am on year 4 and it appears to be in good shape. Mine even lays against cattle panels and yet it still holds up. I have had just a few minor tears and I jump on those with repair tape before they expand.
