What Is PEX Piping Technology?
When you are looking for an efficient, durable, and affordable option for plumbing, PEX, also known as cross-linked polythene, may be the solution for you. This material is created from polythene plastic that is much more durable than traditional plastic, as its composition is cross-linked together. It can be a great affordable alternative to copper piping. Here are a few benefits of using PEX piping technology. Call Reichelt Plumbing today for more information on this fantastic new technology.
Lower Initial Cost
Copper piping is incredibly expensive, as copper is a non-renewable resource whose price can flux with the market. In the last decade, copper prices have been at an all-time high, which can be difficult when you are trying to fix or replace plumbing in your home with a limited budget. This is why PEX plumbing has become much more affordable in the last few years as a fantastic alternative to copper.
If you live in an area that is prone to cold, frozen winters, PEX may be a better option than copper. PEX is much less prone to freezing, cracking, and bursting. This can save you loads of cash and a large headache during the winter months.
PEX piping is incredibly easy to install and will save you on initial labor costs. Compared to copper or steel piping, PEX is easily bent, molded, and cut where it needs to go. PEX can fit into tight or unusually shaped spaces that would be a challenge for a more rigid metal. An experienced plumber will be able to install PEX piping quickly and efficiently, giving you more time to enjoy your new plumbing system.
