If you have a house or business that has galvanized pipes, they will eventually start to give you problems. If corrosion takes over and contaminates the water you’re drinking, it’s time to switch and re-pipe using more modern materials. PEX,copper piping and stainless steel piping have become the new standard for water pipes. Which one we use depends on the location of your water line issue and your budget. Patriot Plumbing Rooter & Restoration will help you make the correct decisions.
PEX is a polyethylene material that can handle extreme hot or cold temperatures. It is also resistant to alkali and other chemicals in the water. It can handle a lot of stress and is easy to work with, as it has less joints. It is the more affordable of the three options.The second option, copper piping, has been around for over 50 years. It is flexible and long lasting and is not very susceptible to corrosion. It is very difficult for bacteria to grow in copper pipes, which is plus. It is more expensive than PEX.
Stainless Steel piping is more expensive than the other two types of piping. However, it works well in areas subject to a lot of corrosion. Both rigid and flexible stainless steel pipe are available. Each choice has its pros and cons. Our team at Patriot Plumbing Rooter & Restoration are experts in the field and can assist you with your choices, based on our knowledge and experience in the Los Angeles and Orange County, CA area.
