Overview of PEX and Copper Re-Piping

Although both re-piping methods are equally popular, let’s take a look at each method separately to develop a good understanding: 

PEX is commonly known as cross-linked polyethylene tubing. It is durable and has flexible tubing. The plumbing tubes are safe for potable water. The reasons for the ongoing popularity of PEX piping are that: 

It offers easy to use and adaptable plumbing system. As it can be easily installed in long pipe runs, PEX needs few fittings and can be turned 90° corners, unlike other pipe materials that may require additional elbow fittings.

Moreover, PEX piping is flexible, allowing for slight expansion in freezing conditions, lowering the chances of a pipe burst. Apart from this, it provides greater resistance to chemicals found in municipal water systems. Therefore, it will not rust or develop holes over time. It is lead-free and certified for water purity by NSF International.

Likewise, copper re-piping is a proven method and has set the plumbing standards for decades. Though slightly higher in cost, copper is known for its durability, strength, and reliability. Additionally, copper pipes are:

  • Recyclable
  • Resist corrosion
  • Provide a strong bond between joints and fittings
  • Has a long lifespan 
  • Do not release toxic gas when involved in a fire
  • Bacteriostatic, which means it inhibits bacterial growth
