Recently, there has been a rise in the use of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) piping to replace copper & PVC in plumbing systems. Some estimates have indicated that residential use of PEX for delivering drinking water to fixtures and faucets have increased by 40% annually. PEX piping holds many advantages over metal & PVC. It has been showing a wide range of benefits for use in residential and commercial plumbing applications as the dominant medium for transporting potable water. If you’re planning a plumbing replacement job, continue reading to learn a few more benefits of PEX.
Benefits of PEX Piping:
One of the biggest benefits of PEX pipe is its inherent flexibility, which allows fewer connections to be used, greatly reducing the time and cost of the installation process. Fewer connections and more direct routing means PEX pipe will deliver a higher water pressure to your fixtures & faucets. Other benefits of PEX piping include:
- Can be integrated with existing copper and PVC plumbing systems
- Reduced fire hazard during installation – no soldering required
- Does not corrode like metal pipes
- Expected lifetime of 50 years
- Good for hot and cold piping
