When was the last time you thought about the type of pipes your home’s plumbing system uses? Unless you’re having a problem with your pipes, it’s likely that it wasn’t any time in the recent past. However, there are various reasons as to why you may need to repipe your home, and we covered those reasons in our previous post. If you’ve discovered that your home does, in fact, need to be repiped, we’d like to go over the options that you have for the type of material you can choose for your home’s plumbing pipes. When your home needs to be repiped, you can count on the professionals here at Complete Plumbing & Rooter to help with your plumbing service needs in Chino.
Copper Pipes Compared To PEX Pipes
The two materials you’ll need to choose between when it’s time to repipe your home will be either copper or PEX. Copper has become a popular choice from plumbing pipes due to its resistance to corrosion, and the fact that bacteria has a difficult time growing inside of copper. However, copper is more expensive than PEX pipes, and copper pipes are more prone to freezing, which can lead to your pipes bursting. PEX pipes, on the other hand, are more flexible, are easier to install, and are more likely to resist things like chlorine and scale deposits. PEX pipes are also less likely to lose heat as copper pipes do, which makes them better for efficiency. PEX pipes also don’t require the sweating that copper does in order to connect the pipes, which also makes PEX pipes a less toxic option. PEX pipes began to be used in the 1980s for radiant heat options in flooring, however, they’re now becoming a more common option for repiping.
