Are you planning on calling your local plumber to replace your old piping? Before you give them a call, you should be familiar with the plumbing options that are available to you. It does not take long to learn about these options. In the end, it could end up saving you some serious money.
In this video, you will learn about the three most popular types of piping and which one is best for you.
PEX piping is a relatively new option. Though it has been around in Europe for some time now. It is really starting to gain a lot of traction in the United States. In fact, some plumbers are switching to focus solely on PEX. Why could this be? Well, PEX offers long-lasting durability at a great price. Plus, it is easy to install. However, it also remains largely untested. There is no telling if the long-term claims of durability will hold up.
While purchasing PEX could save you a chunk of change, other people prefer the tried and true piping that is copper piping. We know that it can last upwards of 100 years. Plus, most plumbers are already familiar with copper piping. Yet, it will be expensive and take some time to install.
