PEX Pipes pluming is a flexible and durable alternative to copper pipes plumbing which has been gaining in popularity in recent years. The “PE” in the name stands for polyethylene, and the “X” signifies cross-linking, which is a way of binding the molecules in the plastic in bridge-like shapes, which increases strength and longevity.
PEX is an excellent material for plumbing, because it is resistant to temperature extremes and chemical exposure. PEX pipes are also flexible, which makes them easy to install and service.
PEX was first invented in the 1930s, and gained wide usage in radiant heating systems in the 1960s. PEX Pipes were introduced as plumbing material in the United States during the 1980s, and has since become the most widely-used flexible material for home plumbing systems nationwide.
PEX Pipes gained unanimous approval from the California Building Standards Commission in 2009 for plumbing use throughout the Golden State. The Commission’s report called the use of PEX tubing “an environmentally superior action with respect to public health, water quality, and air quality.”
PEX Pipe Plumbing has been rapidly gaining in popularity. Over 15 billion feet of PEX tubing has been installed worldwide, and evidence suggests it will soon become the dominant plumbing material in homes and businesses.
PEX Pipes are flexible, which means they can be installed easily, with fewer joints. In addition, the materials cost for a PEX repipe is lower than traditional plumbing materials. This means a PEX repipe is highly cost-effective for the homeowner.
Most plumbing problems occur at joints – since PEX Pipes have fewer fittings, this reduces the chance for leaks.
The flexibility of PEX Piping also means it is quieter than rigid piping. With PEX Pipes, you will experience no more “water hammer” or “singing pipes,” and the sound of rushing water is reduced.
PEX Pipes are resistant to both high and low temperatures. They also expand and contract as water freezes and thaws, which makes PEX Pipes highly resistant to freeze-breaks.
PEX repiping is efficient, retaining heat for longer in hot-water lines and resisting condensation in cold-water lines.
The smooth interior of PEX piping does not corrode and it is immune to mineral buildup as well as pitting or scaling, which means your water stays clean, and PEX piping will maintain its original flow characteristics.
PEX repiping can also reduce utility costs, cutting water and energy consumption, by using direct PEX lines to the fixtures – the “home run” concept – which reduces the amount of water to be purged before hot water arrives at the fixture.
Faster delivery of hot water cuts down on waste, as well as reducing stress on the water heater.
PEX tubing also has a small environmental impact compared with other plumbing materials, making it highly desirable for homeowners interested in using sustainable materials.
PEX piping has an expected service life as long as copper piping, or any other approved plumbing material. Laboratory testing has shown that PEX pipes should last up to 200 years.
