PEX is a very popular piping material because of its flexibility, cost, and ease of use. For that reason, it is a good choice for a replacement for copper piping, especially in multifamily properties like apartment complexes and condominiums.
So why consider replacing copper with PEX in your building or community’s piping systems?
These days, copper piping is much more expensive than PEX. Given enough time, copper will degrade and fail. If you are experiencing copper pipe failure and facing the question of what to do next, PEX is an excellent replacement choice.
PEX has many advantages over other piping material.
These advantages include:
- Easier and faster installation because of the need for fewer fittings
- PEX is more resistant to freezing and buildup inside the pipes
- Easier storage than rigid pipes, as PEX comes in rolls rather than straight pieces
- Considerably lower cost than copper
