PEX Pipes

PEX (or crosslinked polyethylene) is part of a water supply piping system that has several advantages over metal pipe (copper, iron, lead) or rigid plastic pipe (PVC, CPVC, ABS) systems. It is flexible, resistant to scale and chlorine, resistant to corrosion and pinholes, faster to install than metal or rigid plastic, and requires fewer connections and fittings. PEX tubing is made from crosslinked high-density polyethylene polymer (HDPE). The HDPE is melted and continuously extruded into tube. 

The crosslinking of the HDPE is accomplished in one of three different methods; Peroxide Crosslinking, Silane Crosslinking, and Irradiation Crosslinking. While the methods of creation for this material may not be important to you, the consumer, it is important to know that this material is flexible in both its production and applications. 

PEX Features 

The use of PEX has been increasing ever since the 70’s, replacing copper pipe in many applications. This material has been particularly useful throughout radiant heating systems that are installed in the slab under floors or walkways. 

PEX is much more resistant to freeze-breakage than copper or rigid plastic piping. 

PEX tubing does not transfer heat as readily as copper, which helps to conserve energy and lower utility bills. 

Water flows more quietly through the PEX tubing. The common “water-hammer” sounds of metal-based piping structures are almost completely eliminated. 

PEX installations are oftentimes more cost-effective because PEX is less expensive than copper pipe. 

Less time is spent running pipe and installing fittings than metal-based or rigid pipe counterparts, and installing fewer fittings with PEX reduces the chances for return service calls. If you’re looking for an alternative to a copper repipe, PEX piping would be the premium alternative. 

What Is PEX Repiping?

Copper Piping using Modern Technology 

Over thousands of years, copper has proven to be the most useful and safe material to create plumbing infrastructure within buildings. Numerous civilizations have helped craft copper plumbing into its current state. If you are looking for the traditional feel and durability of your repiping project with an added flair of modernity, be sure to choose Plumbing Method to ensure a seamless and professional experience.  

Why Copper Repiping? 

Low Water Pressure 

Rust and Yellow-Colored Water 

Leaky Pipes 

Galvanized Piping in the Current Infrastructure 

Suspected or Confirmed Slab Leaks 

Inability to Multitask the Plumbing System 

Shower, Washing Machine, etc. Not Working all at Once 

The Old Way 

Galvanized water piping was an older and cost-effective method of piping a structure back in the day. The issue with galvanized water pipes, however, is that galvanized water piping rusts and corrodes internally over the years. Particles of rust, zinc and other contaminants flow into your drinking water. They also clog the pipes internally, stopping the flow of water to fixtures. With a copper repiping service, your water will be cleaner and flow faster. Copper plumbing never corrodes or clogs up pipes internally in the way that galvanized piping will. 

Unhealthy Water 

Corroded, galvanized pipes can cause water to become dirty, foul-smelling and unfit to use or drink. This is what happens when rust builds up inside galvanized water pipes. The rust restricts the flow of water and causes a buildup of gunk and slime throughout the system. With your plumbing system free of old, corroded galvanized pipe, you will be free of discoloration and a metallic taste in your water for improved water quality. With copper plumbing, you won’t have any of those issues, and they’re rated to last 50 years. 

Damage To Your Home 

Leaks can develop in the most unnoticeable places: inside your walls, the attic, under your house, and under your concrete slab. These hidden leaks can cause severe damage to your home, from major pipe corrosion to toxic mold in your walls. With a copper repiping for your home’s plumbing system, you can eliminate this risk and prevent corrosion, mold and other damage from happening.
