You may be surprised to know that PEX plumbing systems are installed more often in new home construction than copper and CPVC systems combined. This is because PEX is more durable, more reliable and a cleaner option for a home’s plumbing system.
PEX is an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene. PEX is a flexible, durable, proven piping product that has been used in plumbing systems for more than 20 years. It won’t pit, scale or corrode.
