Copper vs PEX Pipe

Copper vs PEX pipes, which is better?

Copper or Pex pipes? Which one should you pick? Well to answer these questions, we first look at what each type of pipes is, which one is easiest to install and what the benefits and disadvantages of each are.

What is PEX Repipe?

PEX is an acronym for cross-linked polyethylene. PEX tubes are flexible, durable, proven piping products that have been used in plumbing systems since 1980’s. PEX tubes won’t pit, scale or corrode and they are highly resistant to extreme high and low temperatures.

What are the benefits of PEX Pipes?
Adaptable and easy-to-use plumbing system
Can be used with hot and cold water
Can also be used with metal and PVC piping
PEX has fewer fittings for less of a chance to leak
PEX is more burst-resistant due to its flexibility to expand and contract
It has a shutoff valve at each supply line, making it more convenient for you when you have to get repairs done
PEX can have a pressure balanced system
Since it is flexible, the pipes can be bent around most corners and usually won't need a coupling or fitting

Disadvantages of PEX:
It cannot be used outside
Cannot be recycled, due to its shorter life use
It provides an impermeable membrane that may allow the possibility of water contamination
The pipes may be damaged if left outside for a long period of time

What are the advantages of using Copper Pipes?

Here are some of the advantages of copper pipes:
Durable and flexible, making it easy to install
Safer in natural disasters
Weather and bacteria-resistant
Resists corrosion, more so than other metals
Unaffected by ultraviolet rays, so it can be used outside
Copper does not release toxic gases in a fire because it resists burning
In earthquakes, the slightly elastic pipes flex so that they don't snap
Copper is recyclable, making it a more sound environmental choice

Disadvantages of Copper Piping
Can corrode
Has become expensive
With higher levels of copper from corrosion, water can have a metallic taste
Copper can freeze and break during cold water

Which one should I pick? Copper or PEX?

Which one should you pick? It all depends on what your budget is and which one would last longer. PEX is easier and faster to install and less expensive than copper so in effect you will save money both in cost of PEX pipes and cost of labor, but it has a manufacturer guarantee of 25 years.
