Let's Talk About PEX Piping!

PEX piping, also known as cross-linked polyethylene, is a form of tubing that is increasingly being used in commercial and domestic piping systems, for heating and cooling, and insulation for high-voltage electrical cables. It has become one of the biggest plumbing revelations since the invention of the flush toilet. PEX pipes are being used to replace copper in many plumbing applications, with some estimates placing PEX piping as the dominant method of carrying water into buildings in the next 10 years.

Why should I consider PEX piping?

With a 40% annual rate of growth, it comes as no surprise that plumbers are talking PEX. Plumbers are always seeking better and more efficient ways to transport water into homes, and as technologies change, plumbers are using this technology to the benefit of their clients.

Some of the reasons why PEX piping is so popular include:

  • More flexible than other pipes
  • Direct routing reducing the need for joints
  • Greater water pressure in showers and sinks
  • Cheaper cost of materials
  • Easier installation
  • Does not corrode or leak
  • Increased longevity
  • Can merge with existing copper and PVC pipes
  • Less likely to burst
  • Environmentally friendly

With all these benefits, PEX piping is the choice to replace existing pipes in homes across the United States. However, it should be noted that PEX pipes should not be used where it can be exposed to sunlight and plant-feeding insects, installed by plumbers that are unfamiliar with this technology, or used with iron or iron alloy heating systems since this may cause rust.

PEX piping may be suitable for your home! If you are seeking to have pipes replaced, this new piping can be a long-lasting and reliable option. Since 1968, A-1 Sewer and Septic Service, Inc. has provided complete plumbing services for our clients. Call us to have an experienced plumber come to your home and develop a plan for PEX piping installation.
