Re-piping with copper pipes provides a few distinct advantages. Copper pipes tend to be longer lasting than PEX piping, providing a home with a solution that may faithfully last for a generation or more. Copper is also a material that may be used for re-piping both indoor and outdoor pipes. For cleaner water, copper piping has some natural bacterial resistance with recent studies showing copper’s ability to eliminate E.coli microbes. Copper piping also tends to be considered one of the safest options in the event of a natural disaster.
While copper pipe can be costlier when compared to PEX options, it can be accurately viewed as an investment in the home.
PEX pipes are a popular option for home and business owners today for several reasons. PEX is naturally a more flexible material than others chosen for piping, making it a better option for extreme hot or cold temperatures with its natural bursting resistance. PEX piping is also less susceptible to pinhole leaks when compared to other options, making it less susceptible to leaking issues. For those looking for a sturdy solution on a budget, PEX re-piping is one of the most affordable installation options. If a home or business owner is looking for a speedy installation, PEX piping tends to be one of the quickest options to work with.
