PEX piping, or cross-linked polyethylene, is a highly adaptable and easy-to-use plumbing system that can be used with hot and cold water as well as with metal and PVC piping. In residential plumbing applications, PEX piping is commonly used as a replacement to copper water pipes. PEX piping offers many advantages. It is flexible and has fewer fittings, making it faster to install and less likely to develop leaks. Also, because of it’s ability to expand and contract, PEX is more burst-resistant than other types of piping. Unlike copper piping, PEX does not require the use of joints when running from the main manifold to a plumbing fixture. Some disadvantages of PEX piping are that it has a shorter lifespan, it cannot be recycled, and it cannot be used outside.

About Copper Piping Installation

Copper piping is durable and flexible, making it easy to install. It offers several other advantages as well. Copper piping resists corrosion and can be used in outdoor applications. It is also weather-resistant, bacteria-resistant, and safer in natural disasters than other types of piping. Furthermore, copper is resistant to burning and will not release toxic gases in a fire. Copper pipes are slightly elastic, making them ideal for earthquakes because they don’t snap. Copper piping is also recyclable, making it a more sound environmental choice. However, it does have some disadvantages. Copper piping is expensive, making it less than ideal for larger home renovation projects. In some cases, it can corrode and may cause metallic-tasting water. Copper pipes are also prone to freezing during the extremely cold winter months in St. Louis.
