Copper tube has been the material of choice for water-supply plumbing for more than 70 years-or ever since indoor plumbing became the standard for American homes. Today approximately 95 percent of existing homes are equipped with copper plumbing, and even with the development of alternative materials, more than 80 percent of new homes are built with copper water-supply piping.
Flexible PEX plumbing installations require fewer fittings than rigid piping. The flexible tubing can turn 90-degree corners without the need for elbow fittings, and PEX tubing unrolled from spools can be installed in long runs without the need for coupling fittings.
Attaching PEX tube to fittings does not require soldering, and so eliminates the health hazards involved with lead-based solder and acid fluxes; PEX is also safer to install since a torch is not needed to make connections.
PEX resists the scale build-up common with copper pipe and does not pit or corrode when exposed to acidic water. It is much more resistant to freeze-breakage than copper or rigid plastic pipe & does not transfer heat as readily as copper, and so conserves energy.
Water flows more quietly through the PEX tube, and the characteristic "water hammer" noise of copper pipe systems is virtually eliminated.
PEX is less expensive than copper pipe. It takes less time & Installing fewer fittings reduces the chances for expensive callbacks.
