Is it time to consider repiping your home? You may want to consider a full PEX repipe. PEX is the term used for cross-linked polyethylene, which is a strong, plastic tubing. PEX piping has gained in popularity for all types of plumbing installations, including residential, commercial, and industrial properties. The reason is that PEX offers a number of benefits over traditional piping options like copper or steel.
If you are experiencing some of the signs that it’s time for a repipe – such as increased plumbing repairs, high water bills, foul-smelling or tasting water, or frequent leaks – talk to an Aliso Viejo repiping plumber about PEX piping. Here are some of the benefits of PEX:
It Can Withstand Extreme Temperatures
Extreme temperature fluctuations can wreak havoc on plumbing. Freezing temperatures can cause pipes to burst, and large fluctuations in temperature can cause some materials to crack or to wear down more quickly.
PEX is a specially designed material that can withstand extreme temperatures and fluctuations. It won’t wear down, and the pipes won’t freeze or burst. You’ll have fewer repairs with PEX and fewer disruptions to your water service.
It is Resistant to Corrosion
Another common problem with piping material is corrosion. Metal pipes can rust and they can experience buildup of sediment. But not PEX piping. This plastic material does not rust or corrode, and it will not become clogged with sediment.
You can count on PEX to always deliver clean water that tastes and smells great. And again, you’ll experience fewer problems that require repair or repiping.
It is Energy Efficient
PEX has an insulating property that makes hot water stay hot as it travels through the pipes and reduces condensation from cold water. As a result, it makes your home use less energy to keep the temperature that you want for the water.
Repiping with PEX can save you a lot of money in the long run. You’ll spend a bit less each month on your electricity, and that will compound over time.
It is Affordable
When you compare PEX piping to traditional piping materials, such as copper, the cost is significantly reduced. By choosing PEX, you can cut down tremendously on the cost of your whole-house repiping. But even if you are only in need of repipe repair, you’ll still save with PEX.
It is Easy to Install
One thing that helps brings down the cost of a PEX repipe is that it is easy to install. The flexible tubing can be snaked around corners or through tiny niches. Your plumber doesn’t have to install connectors and joints, which cuts down on the materials, as well as the time required to install.
With fewer connectors, there are also fewer opportunities for the plumbing to break down, which further reduces your potential repairs.
It is Easier to Repair
When traditional piping fails, your plumber is likely to have to remove a whole section of piping, which includes a lot of connections and valves. When PEX piping needs to be repaired – which is not that frequently – the isolated section of pipe can be removed without a lot of fanfare. The repair is easier to make, it takes less time, and it costs less.
PEX piping is generally easier to maintain, it costs less to install and to repair, and it gives you more consistent performance. No matter what type of property you own – whether it be your home or your business – and no matter how old your property, PEX piping can give you enormous benefits.
