Why You Should Get PEX Piping For Your Home
PEX tubing can be found in many homes across the country, and it’s quickly becoming the go-to choice for homeowners who are looking to upgrade their plumbing systems. As repipe plumbers in Los Angeles, we’ve answered many questions regarding PEX plumbing and its many advantages, and we thought it would be beneficial to use this blog post to share a few facts about PEX. If you’re having plumbing problems, or your pipes are a bit outdated, PEX repiping could be the solution!
What Does “PEX” Stand For?
The term “PEX” stands for cross-linked polyethylene, which is a man-made plastic product, much like PVC (which stands for polyvinyl chloride). Many plumbing systems may also have CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) tubing, but PEX piping is more flexible than CPVC and doesn’t require glue to install. PEX also comes in longer lengths and is a much better choice for remodeling and repiping projects.
Advantages Of PEX Piping
Zurn PEX B tubing is becoming the most popular type of PEX tubing and it offers a number of advantages:
- Higher flexibility – Zure PEX B piping can expand up to three times its normal size without cracking or bursting. This high degree of flexibility makes it much easier to install than other types of plumbing pipe, such as PVC or copper.
- Less energy usage – PEX tubing is much more efficient than other types of plumbing pipe. It requires much less energy to heat and cool, saving you money on your utility bills.
- Longer lifespan – PEX piping lasts much longer than copper or PVC pipes. With proper maintenance, it can last up to 40 years or longer!
We recommend this PEX pipe brand over others because it has a great warranty and is made from the highest quality materials. Plus, PEX tubing won’t corrode like copper or rust like iron pipes.
If you’re looking for an upgrade to your plumbing system that requires less energy, lasts longer than other types of piping, and is easy to install, our PEX Repiping plumbers can help. We can install PEX tubing quickly and efficiently, so you’ll have a reliable plumbing system that lasts for years to come
Attaching PEX To Copper
If you already have some copper piping in your home, it’s fairly easy to attach PEX tubing to the existing plumbing. There are T-fittings and adapters that can be used to seamlessly attach a piece of PEX to the copper pipe. Our repipe plumbers will always make sure each fitting is secure and that there’s no chance of a leak.
PEX will also resist corrosion and doesn’t allow mineral buildup like old galvanized pipes often do. It comes on a long roll and is made in both red and blue options, making it easy to recognize hot and cold water lines. If you need repiping for your Los Angeles home, contact us today!
